Anchorage Modern Quilt Guild

Anchorage needed its own branch of The Modern Quilt Guild. After crossing my fingers for awhile that someone else would start one, I decided to just go ahead and do it myself! I know so many great modern quilters through flickr and blogging, but very few locally, and I know there has to be more of us here. We have a huge quilting community after all!

So this afternoon I went to the local quilt shops and started handing out information. It was fun to talk it up, and it sounds like people are excited to help spread the word. Sandy at Seams Like Home even offered their class space for our first meeting on May 19th!

So here we go! If you're local, join the group! I think it's going to be a lot of fun.

good for you Krista! I put some feelers out for starting one in my area and have had a few responses. I'm a little scared to jump in though, I'm afraid of the work it might be... I should just do it!

Good Luck! I hope you are finding lots of quilters to join you. I joined the Philly MQG and have met alot of really great women.
