 On Sunday, February 23rd, members of the DC Modern Quilt Guild will be on hand from 12-5 at the National Museum of Women in the Arts to demonstrate quilting techniques, discuss modern vs. historical quilting, and generally to answer any questions about quilting that visitors may wish to discuss.  This in-gallery demonstration is part of the ongoing series of events that the NMWA has planned in conjunction with the exhibit:  "Workt by Hand": Hidden Labor and Historical Quilts.  Access to the demonstration is free with your paid admission to the gallery.  We are so excited to be a part of this amazing exhibit! 

On the same day, artists Jennifer Lindsay and Alice Abrash will be holding a hands-on workshop on making yo-yo quilts.  Cost for the workshop is $15 for non-members, $13 for members, seniors, and students.  More info here


DCMQG Members: Does this sound fun?  We still have a couple of slots left if you'd like to volunteer for the demonstrations.  Contact me for more information!
