Spring In-Town Retreat
May 3-5, 2019

We are holding an in town retreat at Field Trip Quilting studio in St.Paul! This would be a great opportunity to get away from the house for the day and have some fun being social while getting some projects worked on! At the end of the day you can go home to your own comfortable bed!

We have 12 work spots each day Friday May 3rd through Sunday May 5th. You can just come one day, part of one day, or all three days depending on your schedule. Spots are $10 per person per day and filling fast so you will want to contact us via email ASAP for a spot!

Handwork Gathering at Himalayan Java in St. Paul
May 8, 2019 | 7 - 9pm

This is a fun event where you can come to learn something like knitting, hand quilting, English paper piecing, etc. or just work on a project you already have started! This event is free of charge to join and there will be drinks and snacks available for purchase.

MMQG Monthly Meeting - Guest Speaker Tara Faughnan
May 16, 2019 | 7pm

Join our monthly meeting for a special guest talk from Tara Faughnan! She will be talking all about her design process. She will share ways that she takes an idea and develops it, along with how the roll of scale and color are integral to her process.

You will gain insight into how she handles hitting a wall when working on projects or gets stuck in a creative rut. This will be a night you will not want to miss!

No tickets necessary, non-members pay a $10 fee at the door. As always our meetings are held on the third Thursday of the month at the Textile Center located at 3000 University Ave SE, Minneapolis.

Charity Sewing Day
June 1, 2019

As a guild we try to find ways to give back to the community by donating quilts, pillowcases, etc. to those in need. Join us for a group sewing day at Field Trip Quilting located at 674 Smith Ave S. in St. Paul. Please bring your finished quilt tops to be donated or projects to work on to donate! We will have some projects loaded up on the longarm if you're interested in trying it out.

It will be a fun day to get some donation worthy items out to those in need! Contact us via email for any additional questions and for space requirements.
