SVMQG was well represented at Quiltcon 2018 last month; 26 of us traveled to Pasadena to see the quilts, walk the vendor floor, and attend lectures and classes. Our members took over 35 different classes ranging from machine and hand quilting to piecing techniques, from surface design, to fabric dyeing and color theory. (See below for a full list of classes.)
We saw each other in classes and in passing, as we admired all of the beautiful quilts and rubbed elbows with our favorite “sew-lebrities.”
We watched our fearless leader and president of the guild Rochelle Rosales as she participated as a member of panel for a lecture on Secrets of High Performing Guilds.
We had a great time at the Pacific International Quilt Festival this past weekend. The guild had a table on the show floor where we shared information about SVMQG and the Modern Quilt Guild. It was a great opportunity to highlight all of the great activities we have going on. We also showcased our members’ talents and raised money for the guild with modern mini quilts.
Many thanks to all of our wonderful member volunteers who staffed the guild table and provided white glove service for the show!
