Welcome…

…to the Canberra Modern Quilt Guild Blog

Who are we?

The Canberra Modern Quilt Guild will provide an outlet for quilters and crafters of all abilities to connect, in person and online, and share their passion for all things quilting.  The MQG will promote the art of quilting with a modern aesthetic, and provide encouragement and support to new members interested in learning more about quilting.  Through the global MQG movement, we will connect with like-minded people around the world, drawing new inspiration and sharing our ideas.

You can read more about the modern quilting movement at The Modern Quilt Guild blog.

Who are you?

You may be new to quilting, perhaps you have engaged in other crafts over the years, but are interested in finding out what the fuss is all about and would like to try quilting.  Or you may already be a quilter and are looking for others interested in new fabric lines and testing out patchwork and quilting techniques, both tried-and-true or new.  You like exploring the work of others through blogs, Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other online means, and would like to share your ‘finds’ and connect with other modern quilters.

Come and join us!

We plan to meet up once a month, and perhaps organise longer sewing days at times throughout the year.  We want to know what you would like to get out of your MQG, so please get involved and tell us – whether it’s swaps, challenges, discussions, workshops and tutorials, or guest speakers.  Leave a comment or drop us an email.

We’re also on Twitter (@canberramqg) and will be setting up Facebook and members forum pages soon!
