Are you one of the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild members who is planning to go to QuiltCon in Austin, Texas next February? Are you ready to get up early tomorrow morning and register? Registration opens at 7:00am PST on Thursday, August 30th.
All VMQG members have been sent an important email with registration information. Since we are a Gold Needle supporting guild, our members are eligible for a discount on registration, so make sure you have your code ready when you register (codes can only be used at checkout and there are no refunds).
Make sure you have a wish list of workshops so you have a back up plan should your first choice be wait listed by the time you try to register. It’s also helpful to watch the video tutorials created by The Modern Quilt Guild to familiarize yourself with the process.

Are you as excited as I am? The QuiltCon schedule and price catalogue has been released and it’s time to pore over the amazing options and plan for February 2013.
You’ve heard about QuiltCon, right? It’s the inaugural modern quilting conference and show that’s happening in Austin, Texas from February 21st-24th, 2013. Denyse Schmidt is the keynote speaker and there will be lectures and workshops from Anna Maria Horner, Elizabeth Hartman, Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr, Lizzy House, Angela Walters, and many more. There will also be an amazing quilt show, a large vendor mall, and a variety of social events where you can get to know modern quilters from all over.
Despite the distance from Vancouver, BC to Austin, TX, we have an enthusiastic group of VMQG members who are planning to make the trip to QuiltCon. If you’re one of them, we have good news for you! The Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild is now a gold needle supporting guild and that means our members get 10% off their QuiltCon workshop/conference registration.
If you’re planning on going to QuiltCon, mark August 30th on your calendar as that’s the day registration opens as workshops are expected to fill up quickly. We’ll be passing on the discount codes to our members before that date.
If you’re not going to QuiltCon, you can still join in the fun by entering the QuiltCon block challenge. We introduced this challenge at our May guild meeting and will be accepting blocks at our July 19th meeting (please attach the entry form to each block).
Have you heard the news? Today the Modern Quilt Guild board announced that QuiltCon, the inaugural conference and show of the Modern Quilt Guild, will be held in Austin, Texas one year from now! It will feature Denyse Schmidt as keynote speaker and they’ve lined up fabulous instructors such as Anna Maria Horner, Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr, Elizabeth Hartman, and Malka Dubrawsky.
You can find out lots more on the QuiltCon website including information about the Quilt Show. Sign up for the MQG newsletter to receive QuiltCon updates. Conference registration opens August 30th and I can’t wait! Who’s coming with me?
