Spotlight: QuiltCon 2023 

SAMQG is part of the Modern Quilt Guild and one of the benefits is that you can attend QuiltCon for free.  February is when QuiltCon takes place and is the world's largest modern quilting event that happens over four days and includes workshops, lectures, special quilt exhibits, and a juried quilt show covering twelve judged categories.

The SAMQG is proud to highlight three of our members who had their quilts accepted as part of the juried quilt show.  Congratulations, Leslie, Terry, and Susan.
