Austin Area Quilt Guild

The Austin Area Quilt Guild (AAQG) was founded in 1978 and is dedicated to preserving the heritage of quilting and promoting excellence and education in the art of quilt-making. AAQG is a non-profit corporation and membership is open to anyone with an interest in quilting; no actual quilting experience is necessary. AAQG is headquartered in Austin, TX.

The AAQG general membership meeting is held the first Monday night of the month, unless a holiday interferes and the meeting is delayed, usually until the second Monday. The meeting is held at Faith Lutheran Church located at 6600 Woodrow, Austin, TX. Non-members are invited to attend twice as guests before joining.

Show and Tell starts at 6:45 p.m. If you have made a quilt, wall hanging, quilted clothing, acquired a quilt, or have anything connected with quilting that you want to share, this is the time to do it.

The business meeting begins at 7:00 p.m. or when Show and Tell ends. Old and new business is discussed at the meeting, then the program follows. Many of our programs feature nationally recognized quilt teachers and speakers.

At the general meeting you may check out books from the library, turn-in or pick-up baby bundles, sign-up for workshops, purchase raffle tickets, perhaps win a door prize or just come visit.

From time to time, we will schedule a morning meeting which starts with Show and Tell at 10:00 AM. Watch for these morning meetings, especially if you can't attend in the evening. Usually, the speaker for the evening will also speak in the morning, sometimes on a different subject. You may attend both meetings.

Upcoming Events:

July 6, 2015:    ''Scrappy Bits of Applique'' with Shannon Brinkley

         Time: 10:00 am

    Shannon Brinkley is an elementary teacher turned quilt designer and author. A life-long crafter, as a girl, Shannon hopped from hobby to hobby (weaving, cross stitch, knitting, garment sewing, and other crafts) but began quilting in college, where she fell completely in love with the craft. Inspired by her love of fabric and the texture, Shannon wrote the book Scrappy Bits Applique, where she puts a scrappy twist on traditional raw edge applique techniques by collaging a variety of fabrics, vintage and new, with different colors, tones, and patterns to create a really interesting and unique texture. Her techniques are perfect for beginners and experienced quilters alike, as the steps are quick and easy to grasp, and, once learned, offer a wide variety of creative possibilities!

    Shannon lives in Austin, Tx with her loving husband, Matt, wonderfully creative son, Davin, sweet pup, Piper, and surly kitty, Emily. Find out more about Shannon and her work at thebottletree.net.
