Meeting Reminder & Seattle Meet-Up

Happy Monday everyone! After the hot weekend, it's nice to be cooled off by the rain a bit! 
This thursday is our June Guild Meeting. We are excited to be having Elizabeth speak and share with us some of her fabulous quilts from her new book, Modern Patchwork. We will be meeting in the stagecraft building, room S1 at 7pm. Also, don't forget to bring your pouch for the pouch swap (if you are participating). See you there! 

If you've been to the past few meetings, you'll remember that we've been talking to Vancouver MQG and Seattle MQG to organize a meet-up this summer. Well, we've finalized the details, here they are! 

Who: Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild Members
When: Friday, August 10 - Sunday, August 12 (come for all, or come for part of the weekend!)
Where: Seattle, we've reserved a block of 20 hotel rooms at the Executive Hotel, 400 Spring St. Seattle. 
The cost is $129 + tax a night and they are all doubles. Parking is available across the street for $22 a day or $29 for valet. To book your room call 206-623-3900 before the cutoff date of July 10. After that date our block will be released. 
What: We have a great agenda planned! It includes collaborative charity quilting at Island Quilter, mingling with new friends at Drygoods over mimosas, fabric shopping in Seattle, and more! 
Why: To meet other creative quilters in the Pacific Northwest and have a great time together

If you're on board for this adventure, there are two things that you must do: 
1) Please click here to fill out a simple google form so that I can have a solid head-count and information from everyone attending. 
2) If you want to stay in our reserved block, please follow the directions to book your hotel room. 
(We wanted to provide an option for everyone to stay in the same hotel. But if you'd like to stay with friends/family/another hotel, that is perfectly fine.)


  1. Oh, I've got friends in town that weekend. Yay for friends, darn for not being able to go.

  2. So bummed! My kickball tourney is the weekend. :(

  3. Do you have to be a member of any of these guilds to attend? Or can you just be someone interested in the Modern Quilt movement?
