Most meetings are held at The Stitchin’ Post in the classroom. Tentative meeting dates are listed above.

 

central oregon modern quilt guild meetings

 

Free Sew Nights With The Modern Quilt Guild

3rd Tuesdays 5-8 pm
Begins Again in September

(Guild dues are $25/year.)

 

 

The Modern Quilt Guild is made up of over 100 guilds across the country, with a mission to support and encourage the growth and development of modern quilting through art, education, and community. But really…its about having fun! Come see what its all about at our monthly Sew Nights at the Stitchin’ Post. Everyone is welcome!

This summer, be sure to look for a special exhibit at the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show
featuring our guild’s first quilt challenge!

What is MODERN quilting?
“Modern” seems to be the new buzz word in quilting these days.
But what does it mean to be a modern quilter?
Weeks Ringe of American Quilt Retailer Magazine recently shared a few ideas
about what it means to be MODERN:

Modern quilts are original and do not come from patterns or techniques of traditional quilt designs. Modern fabric combinations are more eclectic rather than using fabrics from one particular line. Also, solid fabrics are very favorable. Modern quilting is about creativity and exploration. The modern quilter is not necessarily young!

Class Registration Policies & Procedures

CLASSES
The following applies to all classes offered in this Class Schedule:

What do I need for class?
Each class has a Supply List. There may be additional Kit or Lab Fees for special supplies, such as freezer paper, fabric paints, special templates, etc. Fabric requirements will be listed in your supply list. Some classes require preparation prior to your first class, e.g., pre-cutting fabric, bringing design ideas, etc. Once you register for your class and receive your Supply List, you will receive a 15% discount on all required supplies. To receive the discount, you must have your Supply List with you when you make your purchase..

Registration Procedures
Pre-registration and payment are required. Register during our Fall/Winter Preview Party and receive a 10% discount on the fee. You may register by phone (541-549-6061) or at the store. You receive a 10% discount any time you register on-line at www.stitchinpost.com/classes.html (Sorry, discount does not apply to Clubs, Special Events, Retreats, or Workshops.))

Class Cancellation Policy
You must cancel at least TEN DAYS prior to the class for a full refund. If the Stitchin’ Post cancels a class, you may take a store credit or request a refund.

Sometimes We Cancel a Class….
On occasion we will cancel a class due to insufficient enrollment. We make that decision ten (10) days before the scheduled class. We recommend that you call to confirm that the class has met its minimum enrollment and will go on as scheduled. The safest bet is to do your class purchases within ten (10) days of the class date.

 

What are my Basic Sewing Supplies (BSS)?
BSS includes sewing machine in good working order, rotary cutter, cutting mat, ruler, scissors, tape measure, pencil, pins, and seam ripper.

Winter Weather Alert!
Weather can be unpredictable here in Central Oregon. When winter weather affects driving conditions, our priority is safety! Please note that if the Sisters School District is closed due to weather conditions, we will also cancel class that day. We will reschedule the class for another day, based on classroom and instructor availability.

A Friendly Reminder For A Healthy Classroom
If you have a cold, flu symptoms, or a lingering cough, please be considerate of fellow classmates and the instructor by staying home and taking care of yourself. Call the store in advance to let us know you are not feeling well, and we will do what we can to accommodate your illness.
Along the same lines, we have many students who are sensitive to perfumes and scented lotions; please avoid wearing such products to class.
Thank you!
