Join Our Quilting Community & Let's Sew Together!

Your energy is so welcoming and contagious! I've always stayed on the edge of conversations and the quarantine just made connecting so much harder. You and everyone I have met have made me feel so welcome. I love the Zoom calls where it feels like we are really connected (as opposed to online classes where you may or may not actually see and hear your guild mates) I have participated in 2 all day sew days and look forward to seeing what everyone is doing and I am learning through the technique and ruler lessons! I would highly recommend the group to others!

I love the International Association of Quilters group! Encouragement, help, and friendly faces abound and as we are usually our own worst critic, the encouragement piece is HUGE. I am loving the tutorials on rulers, paper piecing, appliques and the quilt a-longs that stretch me and teach me new techniques. Especially during this past year when we have all been so isolated, the IAQ has helped me keep sane and kept me sewing.

What You'll Have Access to When You Join
The Patchwork Quilting Community

Exclusive Pattern Library

No matter if it’s our year long Block of the Month or a project inside the Pattern Library, you’ll find a variety of patterns for any level of quilter, allowing you to pick and choose your own quilting journey with us.

Each pattern is set up so you can feel confident in your fabric choices, how to use your stash, learn a new technique or two, and most importantly you’ll finish what you start.

Private Quilting Community

We don’t let our locations keep us from learning more about quilting.  Share your wins, your struggles, ask your questions and support others in the community. 

Our private community will become your go-to place for all things quilting – no matter if it’s feedback for fabric your trying to choose from or sharing a finished quilt you are proud of. 

Enjoy our virtual meetups where you can show off your progress, your quilt tops, and your finishes.

Guest Designer Chats

Explore new pattern designers, authors and fabric designers throughout the year.  Join us live as we chat with the designers, pick up fun quilt tips, enjoy trunk shows & ask questions.  

You’ll love finding out about new notions, books, fabric lines and patterns that you can sew up using your stash in your closet.

Not able to make it? Catch the replay in our video library. 

Sew Togethers & Open Sew Days

Our Sew Togethers and Open Sew Days are perfectly timed throughout the year giving you an extra boost of motivation, inspiration and excitement as well as sewing along with other quilters.

You’ll be inspired to use your stash, join us for sew days and finish a cute quilt top or project in less than a week. 

Never sew alone again! Pop into our virtual open sew days and sew with other quilters or better yet, plan your own and invite others using our private zoom room.

Swaps, Challenges, Charity & Awards

Participate in our challenges, swaps, charity efforts and awards throughout the year.

You’ll have an opportunity to sew along in our charity efforts, meet other members in our swaps, and if you finish quilts during the year, you may even qualify for our ‘Golden Gingher’ Award.

Our challenges are for everyone- whether your projects are the current BOM inside the community or from 5 years ago, we’ll help you get back on track, organized and inspired to sew to the finish.

Hi. I'm Becky...

During my quilting journey I had conflicts in schedule, dates, times and family activities – keeping me from participating in a quilt group. 

I loved the community and support of a local quilt group and knew that it was something that helped me continue quilting.

I knew I wasn’t alone in my frustration of missing out on quilt groups, so I started this quilting community. Allowing others – no matter where you are or what your schedule to participate.

Since founding it, I have moved 3 times – but it hasn’t changed a thing! I am able to still connect with members, sew along and not miss a beat in my quilting journey.

I am a 2nd generation quilter. My hands have always been busy and I love to touch all the fabric. Starting with X stitch and embroidery when I was eight to finding quilting with my first child. I found that quilting was good for my soul. 

Quilting tends to be a forever journey and keeping up with tips, techniques and others is always growing – the need for having a resource I can use and add to is something I needed and have enjoyed building.

Along my path I also acquired quite a stash and unfinished projects! In addition to meeting others, I needed a place where I could sew on whatever I needed and encouragement for finishing what I started and using up what I had sitting on my shelves already.

Starting the Patchwork Quilting Community is something that I truly love.  Giving others an opportunity to share, explore and learn in a supportive community as well as a way to track projects, progress and organize our stash – so we are excited about using it and finishing what we start.

Are you...

A collector of all things quilting, who wants to use and sew what you’ve already started…

OR you love inspiration from others, but aren’t able to take classes or have the time to explore outside of your favorites…

OR you’re a quilter who keeps missing out on fun activities, quilt alongs and learning new techniques because of your schedule or location…

OR you’re a quilter who keeps talking and sharing quilting with others, but they just don’t get it…

OR you’re a quilter who is looking for friendship, connection and a place to share – from progress to completion.

No matter how you relate, YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

I started this quilting community so other quilters who find themselves with busy schedules, family and location difficulties could still enjoy a quilt group, use their stash, finish beautiful quilts, learn a few techniques, and connect with other quilters.

This is whey I began the quilting community – so it’s flexible to YOUR schedule. 

Many of our members have moved during their membership and nothing changes! They are still able to connect, share and some have even found that they are closer to other members and have met up in real life! 

Other members have still popped in to attend our meetups and show & tells even though they were at a retreat or in a hotel.  We love that no matter where you are or what you’re doing, you are still able to participate.

I have been a member for only a short time and I have been super impressed by how friendly and helpful everyone is. I love being in a group that likes to be challenged but doesn’t let failure take them away from a project. I have made connections with others that I might not have ever met. I love quilting and this group keeps me going. I’m learning different techniques and love getting new information about rulers I haven’t tried. I am impressed with all of the beautiful projects that others share. Thanks to all of you!

I want to let you know how much IAQ has entertained me, educated me, and connected me to like-minded souls this past year, which has been so difficult for all of us. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you and other members, even if it is "only" virtually. When my local guild started canceling meetings, I reached out to find an online equivalent, and stumbled onto IAQ. Joining was the best move I've made in the past couple of years! The retreats and Zoom get-togethers are a lot of fun, even though we're not all in the same room. I sorely needed company, companionship and all things Quilty. You do a great job of planning classes, BOMs, exposing us to new techniques, and sharing our wins and challenges alike. Thanks for your dedication to bringing quilters together to share experiences. I'm so happy I joined.
