Thomas Knauer Workshop


The Philly Modern Quilt Guild is hosting Thomas Knauer for a workshop in January.  Thomas is an artist by training and used to teach at a university.  Over the past several years (after teaching himself to sew and quilt so he could make beautiful things for his daughter) Thomas has been designing fun and colorful fabric.  Thomas recently published a great quilting book called Modern Quilt Perspectives.  You can find out more about Thomas at his blog here: http://www.thomasknauersews.com/

Thomas gave a great lecture and trunk show to our guild in September (see blog post here) and we are thrilled to have him return to teach a workshop on designing your very own "secret code" quilt.  The workshop will be held on Sunday, January 18th, 2015 from 10 AM til 5 PM  at Olde City Quilts in Burlington, NJ.

We have a number of spots still available that we are opening to non-members.  The price will be $55 payable by PayPal.  If you would like to attend, please send us an e-mail (phillymodernquiltguild@gmail.com).  We will send you a PayPal invoice and then you will need to submit your payment within 2 days to secure your spot.  All workshop fees are nonrefundable.  Please note that the workshop fee does not include lunch, so please plan to bring a bagged lunch or some money so you can grab lunch near the shop.

We look forward to seeing you there!

3rd Annual Last Stitch Effort

Last Stitch Effort is an annual event for members of PMQG to finish up those holiday projects.  


12 members spent the better part of their Saturday eating and being silly together!  Of course there was some sewing, too!

Shelia was working on this beautiful quilt.




Bobbi made some really cool aprons

Nancy made an awesome yellow purse 


Michelle worked on finishing up some Sew Together Bags

And the silliness.....
We wanted to see if Kathy could bit into Sheila's ginormous bag...



.... And she did!
