We run a range of sewing challenges throughout the year. Our theme for the 2016/2017 year is “Stitch. It. Modern.”
We chose this theme to focus on Modern Quilting, to encourage more modern quilt making within our guild and to educate ourselves on what makes a quilt deemed modern.
Serena, our Education VP, will be exploring all things modern with our members over the coming fiscal year. The focus is on one element per quarter, with a challenge at the end of each quarter to see how we have grown together. We won’t be judging these quarterly challenges, but there will be prizes for participation.
- Lost in Space – exploring negative space
- Size Matters – exploring the use of scale in modern quilts
- Off the Grid – alternate or random grid-work
- Show us your Handiwork – hand stitching is no longer traditional
