Do you want to lead an MQG webinar in 2017? We want to hear from you! 

We're looking for teachers and presenters to lead one-hour webinars, which are free to MQG members. Each webinar is recorded and later posted on the members-only portion of the MQG website. Presenters will be compensated for their time.

Topics can include: 
  • Modern quilting techniques and tutorials
  • Modern quilt design principles
  • Tips, tricks and ideas for guilds
  • Panel discussions with multiple presenters
  • At this time, we are not focused on business orientated proposals. Proposals should be targeted towards the modern quilt maker, over quilt professional.
But if you have another idea, please pitch it! Presentations are accompanied by a slide deck. Any resources you wish to share will be posted on Community along with the webinar recording.

Please submit your idea to the form on the following page, and if it's a fit, someone from the MQG will be in touch!

There is no cost to submit. 

We are looking for unique and beautiful special exhibits that have a demonstrable relevance to the modern quilting movement, be it historical, impactful, influential or related to the modern quilting community. Our exhibits generally fall into one of the following categories: 

1. Historical Exhibits: These Exhibits feature quilts from the past that have been influential on and inspiring to the modern quilting movement. 

Previous and scheduled exhibits included: 

  • Roderick Kiracofe’s collection (2013) 
  • Bill Volckening’s collection (2015) 
  • The Quilts of Molly Upton (2016) 
  • SAQA Retrospective: Art Quilts That Inspired the Modern Quiltmaking Movement (2018) 

We are actively seeking an Amish quilt collection. Please do let us know if you have information to help us book one at QuiltCon. 

If you have any questions, please contact Heather Grant at heather@themodernquiltguild.com.
