Meetings and Events

Meetings:
We meet at Gather Here, 1343 Cambridge Street, Cambridge, MA on the last Sunday of every month from 3-5 pm.  Unfortunately due to capacity and space issues, we can no longer currently allow guests to attend our meetings.  Membership is full for 2017, but email us at cambridgemodernquiltguild@gmail.com to get on our waitlist.

Street parking in Cambridge is free on Sundays.


Our next meeting will be for members only on Sunday, March 26th. 


Other upcoming events:

Heather Jones Workshop - From Inspiration To Design - April 23rd, 11am to 6pm

There are a few spots left, and this workshop is now open to non-members!

Bring your inspiration to life as you create a one of a kind unique quilt pattern. Work with Heather to create a quilt pattern that is inspired by something you have seen: an old building, a water tower, the sunset, etc. In this class, we'll be using a photograph of your inspiration as a starting point and will create a quilt design based on that inspiration. Heather will guide you through the process of sketching, designing pattern pieces, calculating yardage and construction methods, creating a color palette, and fabric selection. You'll leave the class with a complete pattern that is ready to be constructed at home. This is a no-sew workshop.

Registration is now open to the public (non-CMQG members are invited to register).  The class will cost $145 and will be held at Gather Here (1343 Cambridge St, Cambridge, MA).  Street parking is free on Sundays.

Your payment is non-refundable as our guild cannot afford to pay for any cancellations.  We will have a wait list and will be happy to help you find a replacement should you need to cancel, but even though we will do everything we can to help, we make no guarantees.

This class is now FULL, but we are accepting names for the waitlist.  Please email cambridgemodernquiltguild at gmail dot com if you are interested.  


Social Sew-In at Lexington Community Center - April 8th

Join us at the Lexington Community Center for a day of sewing. Like a free mini-retreat! Please RSVP if you plan to attend, to cambridgemodernquiltguild@gmail.com, as we invite non-member friends to help us fill extra spaces.

CMQG Quilt Show as part of Cambridge Open Studios - May 13-14

CMQG will be holding our first quilt show as part of Cambridge Open Studios at Gather Here on Mother's Day Weekend. We will provide more information as it becomes available. For now, check the instructions on the Projects/Challenges page for entering a Traditional Made Modern Mini-quilt, and make sure you sign up before February 28th - although quilts are not due until the April meeting.

Latifah Saafir Workshop - Pickled Beets - September 17, 11-6

The one and only Latifah Saafir will be offering a workshop on Sunday, September 17th from 11-6pm at Gather Here on her pickled beets design.  Make this bold, modern quilt that was designed in homage to the classic pickled beets motif. In this fun class you will learn paper piecing and gain skill in curved piecing.  While this is a great class for all levels, if you haven't sewed curves or paper-pieced before, this is a great way to get experience with both. Registration for the pickled beets class will be for CMQG members only for $130 until April 10th at 10am when we will open it up to the public ($145).

Paypal registration is now open, but we prefer cash or check if you are coming to the meeting this afternoon!
