In August 2016, the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild kicked off the first VMQG Showcase, featuring 140 quilts made by the members of the VMQG on display at the beautiful Pipe Shop building located in the historic Shipyards at Lonsdale Quay, North Vancouver. The building’s heavy timbers, high ceiling and abundance of natural light made it the perfect venue to celebrate the fine work of the Guild’s modern quilters, build our community and educate the public about modern quilting. There were modern quilts ranging in size from mini to king-size quilts with a stunning array of modern design and quilting techniques. In addition to the work shown, the Guild offered visitors of any age to play with fabric and explore their creative skills to make fabric cards, free of charge. The Showcase took place on Saturday, August 27 and Sunday, August 28th, and will be held biannually moving forward.
Special thanks to Krista Hennebury for her vision and coordination, and to the team of volunteers for their dedication and work to make the show a spectacular success.
