    Would love to join, although Im 80 odd miles away! Dont know of any closer ones and am desperate to join such a group. What are the plans for meetings?

      Hi Rosie! Looks like there are two other guilds in the UK – Norwich and East Midlands (see the links on the right column here: http://themodernquiltguild.com/) Don’t know if one is closer? I’m hoping we’ll start meeting in the New Year and decide what kinds of meetups members are interested in.

    Don;t think east mids is working anymore. I know their link isn’t but I/we in Norwich are happy to do internet and posting. We;re about to do a wonky star quilt and would love people to join in making blocks . We can supply fabric if people will help make them .
    Might be good to meet online and chat as well or if someone can do streamingl inky ?
    gosh the opportunities are endless.
    Xmas is coming and that means a bit more time to go and sew. ( yeah who am I kidding!)
    Merry Xmas and Happy Quilting 2012 .
    Oh yes Festival of quilts is one to think about too

      Hello – I’m in the London area but would love to assist in making wonky stars – by post I suppose? I’ve made 7 so far for my own (future) quilt project so if you need help on yours it will give me inspiration for my own too!!
      Happy New Year!

        Hi Amy – Great to hear you’re interested! I’ll send you an email about next steps. Happy New Year!

      Wonky stars sound brilliant! I’d love to hear more about your project.

    I’m up in East Yorkshire, but will definitely keep my eye on events & the possibilty of starting a more local group!

    1. londonmqg avatar

      Hi Kim – You’re not the only person who is interested but doesn’t live in London. It’s relatively easy to get your own group going but I also think there will be lots of opportunities for meetups – like the Festival of Quilts mentioned below or Fat Quarterly’s spring event!
