We’re just a month away from our Modern Mini Showcase at the upcoming Vancouver Quilters’ Guild show! Our September meeting is the deadline to hand in your show-ready quilts. Please fill out and submit the Google Form PRIOR TO OUR SEPTEMBER MEETING here: Registration form.  This information will be used to make the show label for your quilt, so we cannot accept quilts without this completed form. Share your progress pics using the hashtag #VMQGmodernminishowcase.

September is back to school season for many of us, so our program this month will be an educational experience! We’ll be watching some highlights of modern quilting webinars provided by The Modern Quilt Guild. Every VMQG member has access to these great resources at home and we want to encourage you to take advantage of this membership benefit!
