Meeting Dates/Times

Monthly meetings are at Christ United Methodist Church, Penman Rd, Neptune Beach FL

The time is from 2 to 7 on the last Sunday of the month. We adjust meeting dates as needed for holidays and special events. Our meetings are followed by a sew-in and often an informal class (see details below – or check our Facebook page)

Also, check out the calendar for other opportunities to join us … in open sewing times, community outreach, and more.

Sunday, 9/29/19 – Monthly Meeting and Free Motion Quilting mini-class (and open sewing time). You don’t have to take part in the class – you can bring a project and work on it instead. It’s all good. We look forward to seeing you.                                                                                                             In the mini-class we’ll talk about FMQ and how it’s done on a domestic machine. You can try your skill on practice pieces, then work on the ArtWalk squares. It’s a great way to practice and gain confidence without committing to a big wall hanging or quilt. Bring your machine with a fresh needle (know how to drop your feed dogs), FMQ foot (small circle foot) or a darning foot, and/or open/clear or regular foot if you like doing straight line or wavy line quilting, small variety of thread (white, off-white, colors), and a willingness to step outside your comfort zone and have fun. Some people like gloves – you can use Machingers or similar … or you can use garden gloves (plain woven or the ones with grippy dots or thin coat of rubbery texture) just make sure they fit comfortably and don’t interfere with dexterity. If you have a super slider (silicone mat that goes over the plate and surrounding area) or something similar – bring it with you.
        All are welcome regardless of their skill level. Please feel free to visit us!

Sunday, 10/20/19 – Monthly Meeting and continuation of FMQ mini-class. Don’t worry, if you missed September’s meeting, we’ll get you caught up and ready to go. Read September’s meeting notes so you know what you’ll need if you want to join in the FMQ class.

  1. HI JMQG Sewists:

    I’ll be collecting the gray and turquosie blocks at this Saturday’s meeting (May 18th) for the Quilts for Boston initiative. Do we have at least 12 blocks? If not, I have a few from my own gray and turquoise WIP I can add to get the size right for a comfort quilt.

    I have twelve of my own blocks to send in and plan to post them all via Priority Mail on Monday. I’ll also bring a card for our Guild members to sign.

    Did anyone do the flags for “to Boston with Love” initiative started by the Vancouver (Canada) MQG? The deadline was moved up to May 21st. I can get those out Exress Mail if needed. They will be dispplayed this year (and again during Boston Marathon in 2014) at the Bosotn Museum of Fine Arts.

  2. I found your site accidently. II am Billie McCray a fiber artist, and you can see some of my work on the internet by googling, “my name” or Jacksonville.com, (name) This is awesome. A lot of person are not responsive to quilting done contrary to the norm. I love designing quilt patterns, and then getting on the machine and seeing them come to reality. Have fun and keep up the good work.

  3. Love your pictures of Quiltcon. Sorry I have not been able to join you at the Library any, we. Are in the process of moving to Jax. Beach. Love the work and the Modern Quilting-much more my style.

    1. Hi Sara:

      I live 4 miles from Jax Beach, so it will be nice to have another Beaches person in our guild. Join us when you get settled.

  4. I would love to join the guild.

  5. Hi, I’m just getting into quilting, and I am super interested in finding a group to sew with! My question about meetings is that I get off at 3 on Sundays, so I would probably be able to get to the meeting around 3:30, coming straight from work. Is that acceptable? I don’t want to be an inconvenience!

    1. Hi Beth: We would love to have to join us anytime you can make it. We meet from 2 til 7 pm with the first half hour our business meeting. We do have a couple of members who aren’t able to attend until later in the day, so you will not be alone in walking in after the event starts. Bring your machine and join us for the sewing and quilty fun. Sunday, December 17th is our Christmas Party annual gathering. Please join us.
