We still have a few spaces left for our Violet Craft workshops and trunk show! See the link here to register! We welcome anyone from the quilting community to join us!
Violet Craft is a paper piecing guru, in both English Paper Piecing and Foundation Paper Piecing, so if you have ever wanted to give these a try, but didn’t know where to start, we have the answer.

Our SDMQG member Dori recommends this article.
This article is about a quilt received in a Care package 70 years ago. It meant everything to people who lost everything in WWII. I though it meaningful to share, as we never know how our donations will affect the recipients.
The National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky, USA invites YOU to enter the 26th Annual New Quilts from an Old Favorite competition. The 2019 competition is open to quilts that are innovative interpretations of Oak Leaf & Reel patterns. This is an excellent opportunity to share your work with people across the country. The quilts selected as finalists receive awards and make up a traveling exhibition. The exhibit opens at The National Quilt Museum and then travels to other museums and venues.
If you have any questions or would like to submit your application online instead of through the mail please contact:
