We are an active group of almost 500 members meeting bi-monthly to share our love of quilting by learning from internationally know experts through lectures and workshops, meeting in quilting bees, sharing our knowledge and skills and caring for our community through service projects. Please browse our website to learn more about who we are, what we do and how you can become involved.
Saturday April 26
10 am - 4 pm
Open to all members of WMQG looking for a new stitching group!Want to join a Quilting BEE? Come to the Bee Buzz and meet other people with the same idea. The Bee Buzz will be at Calvary Reformed Church, 3500 Byron Center Rd., SW, where we usually meet, in the area outside the sanctuary.
We are offering the opportunity to match up people looking for someone in their area, or with a special stitching interest.
Bring your stitching along, and we'll enjoy a stitch-in while meeting new friends in the guild. You can bring hand or machine work. We will have tables set up where you can work. Wear your WMQG nametag if you have one, and a lunch. A refrigerator and microwave are available. If you would like to bring a snack to share - great!
For extra fun, a couple of optional games will take place. If you want to play, bring either 12 - 6" squares of fabric or 2 Fat Quarters and 8-10 items to trade (sewing related or not)
Please RSVP by clicking here to send an email to Michelle.
Hope to see you there!

Maria's most popular workshop, this technique is suitable for all skill levels including non-quilters. No artistic ability is required! (You actually don’t even need to be a quilter to take this class. The finished portrait can be framed instead of quilted.) Focus will be on manipulating a digital photograph to create a fused applique pattern. Step-by-step process shall be demonstrated during the workshop, and written instructions shall be provided, but students will not be manipulating their own photograph during the workshop.
