Meet a maker: Boulder Modern Quilt Guild

Boulder Modern Quilt Guild is a group of 25 or so people who love to make things out of fabric, specifically quilts using the modern aesthetic (not your Grandmother’s quilts).  We have lots of activities including meetings with lectures, all day sewing sessions, show and tell, retreats, social events and projects for charity.  We welcome visitors and new members regardless of experience and style (even your Grandmother).  We teach others and share lots of information.  We particularly want to get young people involved in quilt making to carry on tradition in a modern way.  We are a chapter of the international Modern Quilt Guild.  Our current President is Cynthia Morgan.  See our webpage at http://www.bouldermodernquiltguild.com
