One of the goals of a quilt guild is to provide its members with learning experiences that they may use to develop quilting skills. These experiences are often best provided by lectures or workshops given by both national and local teachers. MTQG provides programs like these each month at general meetings.

Occasionally our meetings may be more social in nature, such as the spring luncheon or ice cream social, and our annual Christmas luncheon.

Quilts and quilting are always part of the day no matter what the occasion.

Scheduled programs and workshops will be presented here, but please see the easelprogram chairperson at general meetings for more information and to sign up for workshops you may be interested in taking.

Rob Appell Program - October 17

We all looked forward to international instructor Rob Appell's visit to our guild and were not disappointed.  Rob learned to quilt while helping out at his mom's quilt shop in Morro Bay, California.  This is where his love of the sea and his work as a textile artist and designer developed.  He designs for Michael Miller Fabrics, is an author, and creates quilt patterns including the Endangered Species Quilt Project.  His high-energized presentation is titled "Quilts From the Sea and Beyond" and adds a masculine touch to our predominate female quilt group. 

You can read more about Rob at at his website here.
