  • Challenge: Face Your Fears! Create a quilt square in the modern aesthetic all about something you’re afraid of. It can be a quilting fear — Appliqué? Curved piecing? If you are a fearless quilter it can be a fear in your life — spiders? Snakes? Heights? As always, our Challenges are posted on our webpage here: venturamodernquiltguild.com/challenges
  • Philanthropy: We are pleased to host Mary Kerrigan from Step Up Ventura, an organization serving homeless children ages 0-5.  Mary will be choosing quilts made by YOU for these little ones.
  • Opportunity Quilt: We are looking for a design (and designer) for the next fabulous Opportunity Quilt. Got an idea? Want to be on the design team? Contact a Board member today!  venturamodernquiltguild.com/opportunity

  • Raffle: Don’t forget to bring extra bucks for our always-fabulous raffle. We want to thank Quilt Ventura for the gift certificate, and we also had goodies from QuiltCon. Got something to donate? Adele F and Gladys R are our Raffle Chairs.
