About Our Guild


Welcome to the Greenville Modern Quilt Guild! In 2015 we became an official chapter of The Modern Quilt Guild. We welcome guests to our monthly meetings and Sew-Ins at any time. If you are interested in membership, our dues are $35 per year and provide membership in the The Modern Quilt Guild, with all of its perks and resources. We look forward to meeting new quilters, young or old, new or advanced, so please join us!




Meetings

Our meetings are held on the second Saturday of the month at Bernina: We're in Stitches, 2310 East North Street, Greenville, SC 29607. The meetings are from 1-3 pm and consist of a short business meeting, Show and Share, and an educational and/or inspiring program on Modern Quilting.

You can find our By Laws here.

Activities

All of our activities are optional! Participate in as few or as many as you like!

Sew-Ins


Our Sew-Ins are held at the Bernina Store, 2310 East North Street, Greenville, SC 29607. They are informal gatherings, where we meet to visit and work on our own projects. Admission is a half yard of fabric, purchased at the store, which is raffled off to one lucky participant. Check our Future Meetings and Events Page for dates and times.







Block of the Month

Each month we provide a block pattern for our members to make if they choose. It's a great way to try a new technique or block design. Members may choose to return their blocks at the meetings and we hope to find volunteers to turn them into charity quilts.

Charity

We collect quilts and donate them to CHAMP (Children's Abuse Medical Program), a service of Greenville Health System Children's Hospital located in the Julie Valentine Center. Quilts are also donated to children participating in the treatment programs of the Julie Valentine Center. The quilts are given to the children free of charge by the staff and provide both warmth and comfort in times of crisis.

Library

We have a small lending library of modern quilting books. Members are welcome to borrow a book from the library and we ask that it be returned the following month.

Retreat

Our annual retreat is held at Wild Acres Retreat Center in Little Switzerland, NC. Please see dates and information on our Future Meetings and Events Page.

    2. Hi, Barbara! I moved to Simpsonville (right next door to Fountain Inn!) in January and joined the Greenville Modern Quilt Guild within the first couple of weeks here. I have spent the past couple of months visiting other local guilds and I have to say that this is my favorite group -- very welcoming and supportive and lots of fun! I encourage you to check us out when you get to the area. Good luck with your move.
