About Us

PghMQG members at a Shibori dying workshop 

Who we are
We are the Pittsburgh Modern Quilt Guild, serving the Greater Pittsburgh area. We are a chapter of The Modern Quilt Guild.  Our roots are based in tradition with a modern twist.

We meet the first Sunday of every month from 1:00-4:00pm, except in months which conflict with holidays. Please check out the Meeting Dates page of this blog for the date, time and location of our next meeting.

Visitors are always welcome to our meetings! Quilters of all skill levels are welcome to join us. Please feel free to bring some of your work to show off during the "show and tell" portion of the meeting. 

PGH MQG Mission and Vision

The mission of the guild is to create a positive community of modern quilters interested in sharing knowledge of modern quilting techniques, patterns, modern fabrics, and quilt making. Fellowship will be encouraged through regular meetings, social gatherings, workshops, lectures, field-trips, community outreach and education, and other selected activities that encourages modern quilt-making and promotes an appreciation of this specific craft.

What our meetings are like
We aim to be less business-like and focus on growing as modern quilters. We try to limit the amount of time we spend on business at our monthly meetings in order to provide as much time as possible for guest speakers, demos, sew-a-longs, and whatever else comes our way. It's our goal to create a relaxed, positive environment where creating and growing as quilters is encouraged.

Membership perks
Membership to the Pittsburgh Modern Quilt Guild also includes membership to The Modern Quilt Guild (MQG). Perks of membership in the MQG include:
  • Members only access to the MQG site, including on-demand webinars, a digital magazine, and newsletters
  • Free monthly patterns
  • Discounts and special offers with MQG sponsors and affiliated companies
  • Early registration and discounts for QuiltCon, the annual MQG conference offering a juried quilt show, classes, and lectures

The biggest perk to membership in the Pittsburgh MQG is connecting with other people who share a passion for quilting and the modern quilting movement. As a member you can look forward to meeting each month with like minded individuals to share tips, advice, and feedback on your projects. If your significant other glazes over when you mention half square triangles, never fear, we never will.
