Group Description

Sarasota Modern Quilt Guild

We are a Sarasota FL area branch of the Modern Quilt Guild –formed for quilters living in and near the Sarasota, Bradenton, St. Petersburg, Venice communities. We meet to share, learn, support, experiment and have FUN!!! We meet on the 3rd Saturday of every month. Starting in May 2013, our new home is at the Fruitville Library on Coburn Road in Sarasota FL. All of our events will be communicated through this listserve and on our website:


Our focus is on creating functional quilts that have one quilting foot in the contemporary and one quilting foot in tradition. We are a relaxed, open, non-competitive group that welcomes quilters at all levels--beginners to experienced.

We are affiliated with the national Modern Quilt Guild which holds a national conference and offers other exciting benefits. Visit their site at http://themodernquiltguild.wordpress.com/
