We are excited to announce the organization of a new chapter of the Modern Quilt Guild, here in Santa Cruz County.
The Modern Quilt Guild was started over two years ago in Los Angeles by two quilting bloggers who met and decided to share their enthusiasm with others. The guild is now International, with nearly 100 local guilds across the country, and many more in Europe and Australia.
As their website, http://themodernquiltguild.com explains: “Modern Quilting is a new and rapidly growing movement in the quilting world. A group of quilters applied their current tastes and points of view to this traditional craft and shared their work online. Their fresh approach and new designs attracted sewers and quilters and the modern quilting movement was born.”
American Quilter Magazine recently published a wonderful article by Iris Frank about the Modern Quilters, which you can access here.
The Modern Quilt Guild Santa Cruz Chapter meetings are the first Tuesday of the month, from 6:30 to 9 pm, at SueDee’s, 222 G, Mount Hermon Rd., Scotts Valley, CA. For more information, contact SueDee’s: 831-439-2001 or http://www.suedees.com.
