Calling All Kansas City Area Quilters (other cities too)


The Modern Quilt Guild is expanding again, this time to Kansas City. You can take a look here and see what Alissa and her peeps in LA have going. We'd love to have a group like this in Kansas City where we can connect and create together.

If you're in the area we'd love to have you as part of the group. We're having an organizational meeting Saturday, January 23rd from 10 to noon at Urban Arts and Crafts in Briarcliff Village. If you're interested, please leave a comment or drop me an email and I'll send you more information. (Saturday won't be our regular meeting date, we'd like to decide that together!)

So if you like to quilt, (beginner or experienced, young or old (or should i say wise)) you have a modern tinge, you love fabric, and you like to share and learn together, this is the group for you. Bring yourself, maybe your favorite quilt and ideas for getting the group moving. (and maybe a little extra cash...Urban has some cute fabric!)

If you know anyone in the KC area, please give them a shout. If you want to announce our organizational meeting on your blog and help us spread the word, that would be soo great.
Thanks!

Pop on over to Alissa's blog and you can see all the other cities who are looking for folks to form chapters too....Chicago, Austin, Seattle, Philly, etc. Head on over to get contact info and see if there is one near you. If not, how about starting one yourself?

P.S. The fabrics are Monaluna's Mingle...You can pick them up from Pink Chalk Fabrics.

Dena said...

I don't like anywhere near Kansas City, but I love your fabric. I'm going to have to call our local quilt shop to see if she carries it. Thanks!

Poppyprint said...

Have fun ladies! It is so nice to spend time with like-minded, inspiring women in person, not just on the web. Quilting is an amazing magnet for generous, caring people. I've been thinking a lot about community and wrote a long post about it here http://poppyprintcreates.blogspot.com/2010/01/one-home-5-communities-quilters-story.html . I hope your group gets off to a great start Jacquie! (and this is very weird, my word verification is my son's name!Tate[s])

I also commented on Tula Pink's blog. I live about an hour west of KC but would love to make it to the meeting! I didn't realize you were in the KC area too.

I just bought the same fabric in three different color combinations. There's something about it that really drew me to them. Nice to see I have such accomplished company.

Would love to do this, but can't that day -- please keep us informed!

Marilyn said...

Oh my gosh, Jacquie, this is so exciting!! I've been envious of Alissa and her LA group so to read this announcement is incredible! And to meet at UA&C is double the bonus--I'll be there! Thanks:)

I am so wanting to come to it but it is two hours east of me and I don't go into KC. I used to drive a lot like that but just can't do it now. Boo hoo for me.
