BOM | Challenges | Exchanges | Passport | Self-Guided Learning Teams | Sew Days | SVMQG Digital | Workshops

Join this year’s SVMQG 2021 BOM challenge – It’s all about IMPROV!  Members will embark on a sew along journey focused on improv piecing and design.  Each month we’ll introduce and explore a new improv block technique and see where our individual creativity takes us.  The program will kick-off in January and culminate with a grand show and tell in December.

This year we are playing with the elements of modern quilting through a quarterly series of mini quilts.  Participants will spin the wheel for design elements to be included in each quarterly project.

We are offering four exchange activities throughout this year. Sign-ups will be online after the exchange is announced in a monthly meeting.

Join in the fun as we fill our virtual Passports with stamps and badges that we earn through participation in our guild activities. Keep track of our leaderboard to see who might take home the top prize in each category at our December Celebration.

Introducing our latest program, Self-Guided Learning Teams. These teams are smaller break out groups where we explore a single subject, a specific pattern, or a particular creative process. Much like a study group or a book club, these teams will provide support and feedback for members as they make their way through the program as defined by the group.

  • Current Groups
    • All About Paper Piecing
    • Deep Dive on Quilting
    • Working in a Series

Have an idea for a Learning Team?  We’re open to suggestions.

Join us each Saturday via Zoom as we host a virtual sew day from 10am – 6pm. Tune in from the comfort of your own sewing space for some social sewing. Each week we’ll feature a different regularly scheduled drop-in activity from 2 – 4 pm. Drop-in topics include Improv Bird blocks, Ask the Quilter,  BOM help, and Monthly Charity Block sewing. 

In addition to our regular monthly meetings on the second Thursday of the month, we encourage you to join us every Thursday for additional content.  Our less structured, Digital Thursday events include a variety of topics such as Block of the Month Sew Lab, Dedicated Show & Tell, How do I quilt this?, etc.

We will be offering three to four workshops throughout the year. Sign-ups will take place online. Participation will be limited to guild members with spaces opening up to the public if space allows.
