The first meeting of the Valley Modern Quilt Guild met at my LQS, Quilt Emporium, in Woodland Hills. I was almost able to leave the shop without bringing fabric home with me. But my quote of the evening was “It’s linen, not fabric!”
The meeting was more informational letting local quilters know of the new guild and finding people interested in joining. Many of the people I saw were already members of the SFVQA like me. But there were a people who were not members of any of the local guilds and was interested in getting more information. Now I’m a member of 3 guilds – San Fernando Valley Quilt Association which I joined late last year and have enjoyed attending meetings and various workshops. I’m a member of the Los Angeles Modern Quilt Guild. I joined earlier this year but with meetings in Santa Monica, it is sometimes hard to get to from the San Fernando Valley. I’ve only attended about 3 meetings since joining. I’m really happy that there is now the Valley Modern Quilt Guild. I’ve already signed up for the next sew in!
