Greater Western Sydney Modern Quilt Guild

All modern quilters welcome to join!

Welcome to the Greater Western Sydney Modern Quilt Guild!


Sydney is a big city! Don’t we all know that!

Did you know that the Sydney urban area actually covers almost 1800 square kilometres? And the population is about 4.5 million people? With that in mind, and with the existing Sydney Modern Quilt Guild concentrating their efforts in the north of the city, Amy and I have been working behind the scenes to set up another Modern Quilt Guild in Sydney.

We present to you the Greater Western Sydney Modern Quilt Guild!

We’re hoping to attract modern quilters from the western, south-western and north-western suburbs of Sydney, but anyone interested in modern quilting is very welcome to attend!

You might have some questions about what is modern quilting? I cannot answer it any better than the Modern Quilt Guild has already done here! Please go and have a read if you have any queries.  We’ve got some fantastic ideas about how to make the GWS Modern Quilt Guild a really fun organisation, and I hope you’d like to be a part of it.

Our plan is to have two regular meetings a month:

– Regular monthly meetings on a Monday evening, approximately 2 hours long. We will discuss the ‘business’ side of the guild, and much more interestingly, ‘Show and Tell’ your quilting efforts. This is your chance to come and chat about all things Modern Quilting. To spice up the conversation, we’ll have monthly themes and encourage you to bring along items that fit the theme. For example, “Show us your favourite craft book” or “Show us a handy craft tool”.

– Regular monthly meetings on a Sunday where we just sew, sew, sew. Bring along your machine, your hand stitching or your quilting and enjoy some dedicated sewing time amongst like minded quilters.

Where are we going to meet? It’s a good question. Sydney is big. We have concentrated our efforts around the geographical heart of Sydney, in an area that provides reasonably easy access from all the western suburbs.

I am still trying to secure a suitable venue for the Sunday Sewalong, but whilst I do that, we will start our Monday Meetups shortly!

Leave us a comment if you have any questions, and we’ll reply in the comments, so make sure you come back and check!
