I'm going to the Pacific Northwest Modern Quilt Meet-Up

I've been itching to go to some sort of sewing/quilting conference for a while, but either found out about them too late or couldn't justify the expense.

And then I heard about the Pacific Northwest Modern Quilt Guild Meet-Up in Portland in a few weeks.  It's inexpensive to sign up, and I can stay at my mom's I'm going!  It's August 15-18th.

I'm actually REALLY excited about it, even though it's a little out of my comfort zone to go on my own.  I'm not a member of a modern quilt guild since there aren't any close enough to be practical for me to join, but they said I could go.  I'm not sure if my quilting style really qualifies as "modern" but I think maybe my Hexies by Halves approaches it. 

So anyone else want to go?  I'd love to meet some of my blogging buddies face-to-face.  You can find information about it here.

  1. Maybe we will see each other there. I am a member of the Portland Modern Quilt Guild, and am going to be there.

  2. I wish I could go. I have far too many traveling irons in the fire now...and maybe a business trip in my near future. For years I go no where, and now, it's a lot of extended weekends in a row!

  3. It was great to meet you at the PNW MQG Meetup this weekend, Polly! I'm glad you stepped out of your comfort zone to meet up with all the PNW modern quilters!
