Huddersfield Modern Quilt Guild

For quite some time it has been apparent that there are a growing number of modern quilters in the Huddersfield area. Here at Simply Solids we wanted to bring you all together and so we have decided to get a Huddersfield Modern Quilt Guild started!

We have scheduled the first meeting to be held in the downstairs teaching space at our shop in Slaithwaite at 10am on Sunday March 25th 2018 and we will be running monthly guild sit and sew / meeting sessions on the last Sunday of each month in the same space from 10am – 4pm. If you love modern fabric and modern quilts then please come along, everyone is welcome! Please note though that this is a Modern Quilt Guild and as such all attendees will be expected to work with modern fabric on modern quilts.

We intend to run a full MQG programme for those that want to participate and this will include things like inter-quild swaps, fabric challenges set by the Modern Quilt Guild and the making of modern quilts to be hung at various local and national quilt shows. We also intend to become affiliate members of the Modern Quilt Guild and the British Quilt Guild.

If you would like more information or to sign up to our newsletter please do email us at
