We are quilters first, modern quilters second

Hello! We are the Phoenix Modern Quilt Guild. Modern quilting is our response to what has come before. We gather once a month to collaborate, learn and share our quilts.


Phoenix chapter was established in 2012. We have grown and evolved into a group of 70+ members from across the valley, country, and globe with a variety of interests and talents. We host periodic Sew-n-Chat, workshops, and other special events throughout the year.

We are a diverse welcoming community coming together to  educate and share the passion of quilting by supporting each other, giving to our community, all through the love of Modern Quilting.

March 2023 - Make it and take it – Monkeying Around
Claire, Carol, and Bonnie will guide you while you make a “modern” sock monkey. Sock monkeys have been around about a century and are made traditionally from Rockford Red Heeled socks, but we will make them modern!
Come and spend the day making your monkey with us. If you don’t want to keep it, Diana will be standing by to take it for Community Outreach. Socks will be supplied.

EXTENDED MEETING 10:00am – 3:00pm, Pyle Center, Tempe

We're on Slack! Join us for lively discussions on quilting or non-quilting topics.
Slack is not required. Slack is an online real-time chat board that can be used on desktops and mobile devices.


We meet on the second Saturday of each month from 1 p.m. until 3 p.m., unless noted otherwise.  We get the business talk out of the way at the beginning of the meeting then we can move on to the fun stuff like “show & tell”.  Bring your projects, works in progress and get help if you’re stuck.
