Are you a PMQG Member?

We’re soooo popular. Is it our high-energy meetings? Picnics in the park? Show and Tell? Or maybe has word gotten out about our great give-aways and member discounts. Whatever the reason, the PMQG roster has grown to more than 115 members--fifty-eight of those are new to the guild in 2012!

Almost half of our members have a {quilt-related}blog.

But of course we’re more than just numbers. We’re mostly women, but we do have three members who are men (and only one of them has a partner in the guild). Our members have shown they’re willing to go out of their way to come to a meeting. We live all over Oregon and Washington in Portland, Beaverton, Vancouver, Troutdale, Hillsboro, Salem, Lake Oswego, Astoria, Gresham, Oregon City, Neskowin, Ridgefield, Chehalis, LaCenter, Albany, Ocean Park and West Linn. 

Why join the Portland Modern Quilt Guild? All of our members can enjoy <!free!> All-Day-Sews, fabric challenges and discounts from our sponsors, including Sew Mama Sew, Modern Domestic, Joann Fabrics, Lark Cottons, PNCA, Bolt, Pendelton Woolen Mill Store, and SewPo. The PMQG is a chapter of the national MQG, and a Gold Needle Sponsor of Quiltcon--national benefits! We get invited to show our quilts at special exhibits, promoting our work and our style (and saving members entry fees, too).

Everyone is welcome at our monthly meetings, and we take membership applications throughout the year. The Paypal button on our website is the simplest way, and open 24/7, but you can also bring a check or cash to any of our meetings. Find our Treasurer (this year it’s Nancy Stovall) to get signed up.
During our December meeting-with-potluck we’ll have a membership event (think of a hundred-plus members all pushing the paypal button at one time) to kick off our FOURTH year! Fellowship, community, sharing, saving, education. It’s all here for you, so join us!
