Hey there makers!
We have a special announcement to make! In the next few weeks we’ll be attending Quiltcon East in Savannah, GA! Yay! For those of you who aren’t familiar with Quiltcon, it’s the largest modern quilting show of it’s kind that’s presented by the Modern Quilt Guild. This convention is open to the public and it’s a great place to network with like-minded makers. It features HUNDREDS of modern quilts, tons of lectures and workshops lead by your favorite bloggers and designers, and there’s lots of vendors for you to indulge in all kinds of quilty things!
We’re extremely excited to attend this convention for the first time! Throughout the four day event (February 23rd-26th) we’ll be hosting tons of activities and giveaways for attendees. If you’ll be at the show, make sure to pass by Booth 1050 and see our concept: The Quilt District.
Since we’re coming from sunny South Florida, The Quilt District was inspired by the burgeoning art scene of our city. Miami is known for its Art Deco District, the popular Miami Art Week in December (Art Basel), and the Wynwood neighborhood with its iconic & ever-changing murals. We wanted to bring a little piece of home with us while expressing our love for quilting, hence the Quilt District was born! Plus, in our world there would be a quilt district everywhere. ;)
While taking a stroll through our booth, you’ll also be able to meet some of the AGF designers and chat with our AGF Sewcialite Mister Domestic. For those of you who are members of the Modern Quilt Guild, you can even register for two demos hosted by Mister Domestic!
Check out what he’ll be teaching:
- Improv Flower Block | Thursday, February 23rd at 12:30pm
Learn Mathew’s scrappy improvisational patchwork technique to create a flower block.
- Tumbling Blocks Weave | Friday, February 24th at 10:15am

If you’re not able to attend, don’t worry we’ve got you covered! We’ll be live from Quiltcon on Facebook and Instagram! And yes... Mister Domestic will be the host with the most, during this fun event. You won’t want to miss his antics!
We hope you’re as excited as we are to be part of Quiltcon! See you in Savannah, GA!
Til next time,
