Guest Designer for the Patchwork Posse Quilt Guild

I'm honored to be included as a guest designer for the month of August for the Patchwork Posse Quilt Guild online! I think you'll recognize some of the other designers, too! Before the price for 2016 rises on January 1, I wanted to provide you some information in case you're looking for a friendly sewing community plus tons of patterns. Thanks to Becky for this handy guide!

Here are the details:

Designed by: Becky Jorgensen of Patchwork Posse.

Joining her this year are guest designers: Jacquelynne Steves, Bustle & Sew, Christa Quilts, SewCanShe, GillyMac Designs, Esch House Quilts, Quilty Habit, Hope’s Quilt Designs, May Chappell, Cute Quilt Patterns, and New Leaf Stitches.  More about the Guest Designers here.

Guild details: 1 year from purchase- over 30 patterns + 2015 year is included!

Why should you be part of “the quilt guild”?
The group is online. You will have access to all the patterns, members and show and tell 24/7.  No missing out on anything. This is a group that fits your schedule, has members that are passionate about quilting, and gets you excited about designers you would normally not have direct access to.

When you join you will also have full access to 2015 patterns - both in the group and by the guest designers. There are more patterns than you have time! You will be kept sewing all year long.

Besides the private Facebook group where you can upload pictures, ask questions, and meet other members, you can also share your work over on Instagram - we’ll be using the hashtag #quiltguild. You can follow on Instagram here

Quilt Group Format:  The group has a private Facebook group for members only.  There you can share your own projects you are working on or have finished, meet and get to know the members from around the world, download patterns, and participate in the group. Everything is in one spot- simple and easy to use on your computer or on your phone. 

And here’s how it will work:
The Quilt Group starts the day you join. Everything from 2015 is available once you join. The 2016 projects will be starting on January 1st and will be shared during each week of the month.  During each month there will be a fun sewing project, two block of the months, a doll or plushie pattern, printable, guest designer pattern, with the occasional mystery quilt, sew along, swaps and giveaways. Each Sunday you will get an email from the quilt group about what’s happened during the week- but the group online is always open! You can share any time during the day.

Finished projects: During 2016 there are 2 Block of the Months - one is a mini quilt!, 13 tea towels, doll quilts, plushie patterns, printables, bags, pin cushions, table runners and more!  More about the projects here.

Skill level: Beginner – Confident Beginner.  Because of the community atmosphere, you are able to get help if you are stuck, ask questions and share a hint.
Technique: Because of the guest designers and variety of patterns you will be exposed to a rounded amount of different styles and techniques, including applique, embroidery, paper piecing, patchwork, hand sewing hexagons etc.

Price: $35 / year (price will be rising starting January 1st)

Pattern Format: PDF files (download and save instantly)

I hope you'll join me!
