The Modern Quilt Guild announces Quilt Con in Austin, TX, February 21-24 2013 with keynote speaker, Denyse Schmidt.

But what is QuiltCon?

QuiltCon will be the first modern quilt show and conference of it’s kind, and will incorporate a juried quilt show (with cash prizes), vendors, lectures and workshops  from top modern quilters, including Denyse Schmidt, Anna Maria Horner, Elizabeth Hartman, Malka Dubrowsky, Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr.

In less than 3 years the Modern Quilt Guild has expanded rapidly to include thousands of members in over 100 chapters, all across the world. Founder and board member, Latifah Saafir says ‘it became obvious to us that the next step for our (Modern Quilt Guild) members was offer an event that was custom tailored for them’.

‘We hope our conference attendees can learn new techniques and strengthen their quilting skills with the most influential and recognized modern quilters in the world’ said Alissa Haight Carlton, founder and president of the Modern Quilt Guild.
