Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild

The Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild exists to provide a place where modern quilters can meet, share and create.

We are the Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada chapter of The Modern Quilt Guild, and as such, we are part of the Modern Quilt Guild movement that encompasses over 100 modern quilt guilds in Canada, the United States and internationally.

Membership

Our membership is open to anyone interested in modern quilting and all that goes along with it. Members benefits include priority registration in VMQG workshops, retreats, and sew-ins and membership in The Modern Quilt Guild, and much more! LEARN MORE…

January 20th All Day Sew-in

Since so many people had to cancel their plans to attend our last sew-in due to snowy weather, we’ve scheduled another all day sew-in! Sign up and join us from 1:00pm-11:00pm on Friday, January 20th at Holy Trinity Anglican Church (details below). You can register online using our PayPal button below. The price is $10 like our usual Friday night sew-ins and you can join us for the full ten hours or any portion of that time. This will be the last one Holly can coordinate until May or June, so we hope you can join us!

Enjoy open sewing time with your VMQG friends! Baste a quilt on the large raised table! Cut out your next quilt using the large cutting mat! This is a great time to work on any of your own projects in the company of fellow quilters.

We supply the tables and chairs, irons, cutting mats, and tea. Donations of treats are always welcomed!

You need to bring your machine (don’t forget the foot pedal!), supplies for your projects, extension cord, power bar, tools, and dinner.

The Details

When: 1:00pm-11:00pm,
Friday, January 20th, 2017

Where: Parish Hall, Holy Trinity Church, 1440 West 12th Avenue at Hemlock Street, Vancouver. Enter through the main doors on the south side of West 12th and go up the elevator to the second floor.

We have plenty of space for cutting and basting!

Cost: There is a $10 fee per sew-in if you pre-pay before the sew-in day (you can pay via PayPal if you like, see button above) and a $15 fee at the door (cash or credit card). Members get first opportunity on the 16 or so spaces available. If you are not a VMQG member, consider joining or email us to see if there is space available for you.

There is a kitchen at Holy Trinity, so you will be able to heat up your dinner if you wish.
Parking: There is a small parkade off of West 12th Avenue with about ten spaces however most of them are marked small car only. Parking is limited on street, more spaces open up at 6pm. There are three spaces in the alley behind the church and they access the Parish Hall through the alley (a phone number will be posted on the door if the doors are locked). As this is only our third sew-in with an afternoon component, we anticipate that parking will be more of a challenge and we encourage people to carpool if possible.
How do I sign up? You can sign up for this sew-in by paying $10 via PayPal (see above) or paying $10 with cash or credit card at our January 16th guild meeting, or by paying $15 at the door (email Holly first to confirm that there’s room for you!).
Please contact Holly (holly@vancouvermodernquiltguild.ca) to register or with any questions.

See you there!
