About Us

The South Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild is a local chapter of the Modern Quilt Guild. Our guild was founded in September of 2011. Here’s a share from the October 2012 meeting:

We meet the first Tuesday of the month at 6:30pm in Santa Cruz, CA. In addition to our monthly guild meetings we host sew days, workshops, and an annual quilt retreat. Our guild members also design and create charity quilts. Our membership year is from January to December. Joining our local guild also gives you membership to the Modern Quilt Guild (MQG). September of 2016 is our five year guild founding anniversary. We invite you to attend two complimentary meetings before joining.

We welcome visitors to join us at our monthly guild meetings and learn more about us.

We would also be happy to answer any of your questions via email sbamqg@gmail.com.
