Because many of us live in different locations around New Zealand, we have come up with the concept of having NZMQG Sew-Ins.
Using your phone, tablet or laptop we all connect into a “Room” and spend a few hours together, sewing/quilting and chatting. It is a social occasion. It also means you don’t have to pack your sewing project or machine and take it to another location.
We as a group also get to share our creative spaces, weather this is a dedicated room or the dinning room table, we are all portable with you.
Take a look in our Events section for our next Sew-In, we try to make them often enough that you will be able to fit in at least 1 or 2 sessions a month.
We are happy to announce that we are now taking on memberships to the NZMQG, if you are interested in joining us please click on the button below
Our membership fee of $45 for a 12 month period. As a member you will be apart of a community of like-minded quilters, and participate in Guild hosted sewing meets, our online community and quilting events. You will have full access the Modern Quilt Guild community hub, which includes monthly webinars from top Modern quilters, MQG’s block of the month, and so much more.
New Zealand is getting it’s first fully national Modern Quilt Guild.
We don’t have an offical opening date as yet, but hope to taking memberships from January, 2017. If you are interested in being on the board of the New Zealand Modern Quilt Guild, then please check out the Enlist section of the website for more information on the roles. You can also make contact with us using the form on the Contact Us page for more information.
The guild is going to use a mixture of online tools, and meet-ups around New Zealand, giving everyone in NZ a chance to experience the art of Modern Quilting.
