San Diego Quilt Show Sew-In

We’ve been given the opportunity to hold a sew-in at the San Diego Quilt Show, which is happening from September 20-22 at the San Diego Convention Center.

Show times: Thursday 10am-6pm, Friday 10am-6pm, and Saturday 9am-4pm.

You will need to commit to the days (or half days) that you want to come to the sew in, in order to have your space reserved. Sign ups will be open until September 12th. The entrance fee will be waived for the first six people that commit to sewing each day. A half day option will be available if you only are able to sew for part of the day.

Feel free to bring your own project or to work on blocks for the QuiltCon Charity Quilt project. As part of the sew-in, we’ve been asked to highlight our charity efforts, so we will have information about the charities that we currently support as well as examples of what we’re currently working on for our charity project. We will also be spreading the word about quilting and guilds in general.

Chairs, tables, and power will be provided, but you will need to bring any other supplies that you use to sew (machine, iron, ironing surface, cutting tools, ect.). A SDMQG moderator will always be present in the sewing area, so you will be free to go walk around and see the show as well.

To sign up for the sew-in, or if you have any further questions, email Cohni Corazon at [email protected]

Calling All Quilters!

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.
