…the Canberra Modern Quilt Guild

Who are we?

Canberra Modern Quilt Guild Exhibition 2014

The Canberra Modern Quilt Guild provides 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 promotes the art of quilting with a modern aesthetic, and provides encouragement and support to new members interested in learning more about quilting.  Through the global MQG movement, the Canberra branch connects 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 website.

Who are you?

Canberra Modern Quilt Guild 2015 Raffle Quilt and members

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!
