Happy 2019!

Members of the PMQG are looking forward to another fun year of sharing and learning with friends! As we gear up for 2019, we’d like to say THANK YOU to our new Officers and Board for stepping into these important roles. Here are some highlights planned for this year:

Community Service – This year’s community service project will be toiletry bags for a local women’s shelter.  Guild members will be making zip pouches and filling them with necessary items to be handed out. Some of the women at the shelter arrive with little more than the clothes on their back – we’d like to show them love through a hand-made item that’s both lovely and practical.

Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival – Join us this year at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Fest where our 2018 Challenges, “Name That Tune” and “Once Around the Block”, will be displayed.

6th Annual Open House – The PMQG turns 6 this year! We’d love for you to come and celebrate with us at our annual open house, held in June. Stay tuned for more info as we plan this exciting day.

Member’s Retreat – The member’s retreat is one of the perks of membership in the PMQG. Members enjoy working on projects while having fun with friends. Food, goody bags, and door prizes are part of the fun. We’d love you to join us! Contact us for membership info and more details.

Holiday Party & Fundraising Auction – Join us in December for our annual Holiday Party!  What’s better than spreading holiday cheer with your quilting friends – with great food, door prizes, games, and lots of merry. The highlight of the party is our annual Fundraising Auction – do a little last-minute “shopping” for friends or keep your winnings for yourself. It’s a great time and helps fund the guild for the coming year.

5th Annual Open House

It’s that time of year again! Join us for our 5th Annual Open House for a great time filled with friends, food, and fun.

JOIN US! 2017 Annual Open House

It’s that time of year! Every June we celebrate with an open house and invite the community to come see what we’re all about.
Whether you’re a brand new sewist or seasoned quilter, we have something for everyone!
We hope to see you there!

Community Service Sew-In 2016

Every October members sew their hearts into hats and scarves for the homeless in our community.
The church’s homeless outreach distributes them throughout the winter months.  This year we made over 100 hats and scarves. Great work, everyone!

2016 Picnic & Open House

Our 3rd Annual Picnic & Open House was a blast, as usual, with food and fun of all kinds.
Mini Quilts at the Peninsula Modern Quilt Guild Picnic

Members & Guests could bid on these adorable Picnic Mini quilts.

The Blocks-of-the-Month added decoration.

A picnic isn’t a picnic without great food!

Quilt Bingo has become a Picnic favorite.

2016 Raffle Quilt Winner

The winner of the 2016 Raffle Quilt was one of our own, Ursula R.!

The lovely Valerie Lee, aka VaLouise, came to share her trunk show and teach members tips and tricks using BlocLoc Rulers for fabulous results.

Members had the opportunity to try different rulers and share their own favorites.

We are so fortunate to have so much amazing local talent in our area! In February our good friend, Mary Menzer, came to teach her Improv Mini workshop for us.
Some of us stepped out of our comfort zones easier than others, but we all agreed the end results were worth the leap.
