The Bainbridge Island Modern Quilt Guild’s (BIMQG) mission is to develop and encourage the art of modern quilting by supporting new quilters and other fiber artists interested in non-traditional and improvisational quilts. In addition, BIMQG offers educational opportunities through workshops and by sharing information at meetings and through its newsletter. The Guild also sponsors community an annual quilt-making event, an
annual quilt show, and quilt displays in public places.
Regular meetings are held the second Sunday of each month. Guests are welcome. Check BIMQG’s Facebook page for meeting locations and sign up for the newsletter at bainbridgeislandmodernquiltguild.com.
Since 2012, BIMQG has presented the annual Bainbridge QuiltFestival, a free community event that displays quilts of all styles along at Winslow Green. Anyone can enter a quilt for this show by registering at bainbridgequiltfestival.com . Registration is open June 30 to August 31 annually.
The Festival is the second Saturday of September. Festival-goers enjoy over 150 quilts displayed outdoors. Everyone has the opportunity to buy raffle tickets and to vote for their favorite quilt. One lucky person goes home with an original BIMQG-made raffle quilt. Three talented quilters will win prizes based on the viewers’ voting.
Each November BIMQG hosts a community sewing event to make giving quilts for area groups.
