Our Second Birthday...

It is two years since we joined with a guild known as The Modern Quilt Guild. It is based in Los Angeles and soon after setting up, the Guild grew into an international guild, including us, The Central Coast Modern Quilt Guild.

It has been a huge success. A lot of new friendships have been forged, money has been raised for charities and tonnes of quilts have been made.

Next year, The Modern Quilt Guild Presents QuiltCon 2013 in Austin, Texas,USA, The First International Modern Quilting Conference and Show with Keynote Speaker Denyse Schmidt

QuiltCon will be the inaugural conference and show by and for The Modern Quilt Guild. The first modern quilting event of its kind, QuiltCon will feature top modern quilting instructors and will
attract attendees from around the world.

The Modern Quilt movement has been key in getting a whole generation of young people into sewing and quilting. They have shown that you don't have to stick to the tradtional ways of doing things and experimenting with fabric can achieve some really great results.

So here we are two years on. Looking to the future we hope to grow our guild and have more adventures in quilting.
"Happy 2nd Birthday"
