MINNESOTA CONTEMPORARY QUILTERS AT A GLANCE

“We foster creativity by welcoming the art quilting community to learn, share and inspire.”

 

Minnesota Contemporary Quilters (MCQ) is an affiliated guild of the Textile Center. We provide monthly programs to our 100+ members, showcase a traveling exhibit (virtual in 2021), and foster community through special events, retreats, and small groups.
