"I don't know many friends that like to sew as much as I do. I was waiting to find a group that wasn't super expensive to join since I had never been part of one- I wasn't sure if I would enjoy it. I was so excited once I saw what the planned projects were, the names of guest designers I hadn't heard of before - I knew I had to sign up as soon as possible! I am beyond happy I joined this one!"
Maggie
"What an awesome group! As a newbie to sewing and to quilting I have so much to learn and everyone is welcoming, inspiring and encouraging."
Loraine

"Charity blocks - I love being to use my skills to help others!"
Anne
"Good projects for both beginner and experienced quilters. Many of the ideas can be used in non-quilt projects but use quilting techniques."
Fran
"This is a great group for sharing ideas and accomplishment. Looking at the different projects and reading the comments, etc. always lifts my spirit and leaves me with a smile."
Carol
"I love being able to access the guild any time of the day or night. I've learned new techniques and have had my questions answered. The people part of the guild are so friendly and feel like my friends!"
Cheryl
"Patterns - love to see new things that people are making for others to create with"
Wendy
"As a fairly new sewer/quilter and having never been involved with a quilt guild before, this group has been great with information sharing, growing me with new concepts such as the mini quilts, and stretching me by pushing for accuracy, i.e. the block swap. I love that the group is multi-national so ideas flow from everywhere."

No more "sewing alone and the family not getting it"
it's time for "having fun and sharing with other quilters who understand"

Hi- I’m Becky.

I’m the one behind the IAQ.  I have been a pattern designer for over 8 years.  The online world is kind of my playground.  I love to explore new techniques, designs and then make patterns so others can give it a try as well.

I found that an in person quilt group or guild was sometimes a little tricky to attend.  I wouldn’t always have the time in the schedule or the ability to attend a monthly meeting.  This was pretty frustrating as I was finding myself behind in projects the groups were doing…. I was also missing out on signing up for swaps and other fun members activities.

Starting the online quilt group in 2014– it was a way to allow others who have the same issues…whether it’s the schedule or the location or whatever… to have a spot to go for a quilt group.

We provide you not only the online community, but we introduce you to new designers, patterns, swaps, and more. We know you are busy with your own schedule, that’s why we made it simple to participate. 

There are NO additional costs for patterns, downloads, etc. Everything is included – use the fabric on your shelves and you’re ready to go. 

It’s currently $220 for a yearly membership (2 months free!). That comes out to 1.5 yards of fabric per month! (or 1 pattern).  There is also a monthly payment option at $24.
