ABOUT OFFICERS COMMUNITY BLOG FACEBOOK SUBSCRIBE

Welcome to the Dallas Modern Quilt Guild!

Our mission is to promote the art of modern quilting in the Dallas area. We offer educational demonstrations/workshops, swap and challenge opportunities, and charitable community outreach.

Membership is open to quilters of all skill levels and we pride ourselves in creating a positive, welcoming atmosphere for new and experienced quilters alike. We are a nonprofit organization and a branch of The Modern Quilt Guild.

MONTHLY MEETINGS

Our monthly meetings are held the fourth Thursday of the month at 7 pm at Ridgewood Park United Methodist Church, 6445 E. Lovers Lane, Dallas. The church is located on E. Lovers Lane between Abrams and Fisher, about 1.3 miles east of Central Expressway. Each meeting focuses on a new topic with a different swap, presentation, demonstration, or challenge.

In November and December, we meet on the third Thursday of the month due to the holidays. 

SATURDAY AND SUNDAY SEWS

What could be more fun than quilting with friends? We have cutting and ironing stations as well as large work spaces ready for you! Just bring your project and machine! Saturday Sew and Sunday Sew dates are posted on Meetup.

HANDWORK MONDAYS

The perfect time to work on all you put aside hand-sewing such as hexies, embroidery, binding and anything else you can think of that does not require a sewing machine.  This super fun social time takes place on the first Monday of the month at the location listed on our Meetup page.

COMMUNITY SERVICE

The hospice program at Presbyterian Plano is our charity of choice. In addition to finished lap-size quilts and quilt tops, we also accept donations of: batting, fabric, backings, and quilting services. Please contact our Community Service Chair, Laurie Thompson for more information.

BI-ANNUAL RETREAT

Each May and November, our members enjoy a little piece of heaven when they attend our bi-annual retreats! They are the perfect time to build camaraderie, learn from each other, and strengthen our friendships! Quilting + friendship = too much fun!!!!

Retreats are a perfect time to finish those UFOs [unfinished objects], special projects, and community service lap quilts. Spaces are limited and fill up quickly. DMQG members receive priority reservations. For more information on our retreats, please contact our Retreat Coordinator, Lee Jenkins.

DUES

$40 annual dues are payable each June. New members are invited to attend two DMQG events before becoming a dues paying member. Dues may be paid by check at our meetings.

When joining Dallas MQG, please use your full name as your Meetup ID. This helps us match check or WePay dues payments with members and it also assists us in maintaining an accurate membership roster for our 501(c)3 filings.
