The Melbourne Modern Quilt Guild is managed by a volunteer committee, who help to run our events, manage our sponsorships, and arrange our speakers and activities.
Cathy began quilting many years ago, taking inspiration from her crafty friends who helped guide her to the vibrant, creative expression she enjoys today. A complete antidote to the misplaced view that quilting is for the older set, she adds a sassy touch of glamour to our meetings, and can always be relied upon to offer pithily amusing child-rearing advice.
Sue joined the committee as Treasurer in 2016. Sue has been quilting for nearly 20 years and has a penchant for scrappy quilts with a modern aesthetic. Her eclectic choices in fabric stems from the motto “throw it all in there and see what comes out”. Sue says nine times out of ten (we say 10 out of 10!) the result is pretty amazing!
Ordinary Member – Bees, Swaps, & Challenges: Ssu Yuan
Ssu Yuan (pronounced Sue Yen) got into quilting by doing a beginners class at AQC 2013, and was immediately hooked. By the end of that year she realised that she was drawn to the bright, fresh colours of modern quilting. She found out about the MMQG while going out for drinks the first week of 2014, and has been a member ever since!
Ordinary Member – Events: Louise
Louise is a funding member of the Melbourne Modern Quilt Guild and previously held the role of President. Louise now looks after all of the guild events and produces some pretty spectacular quilts!
Ordinary Member – IT & Social Media: Alyce
Alyce is a “modernitional” quilter with a love for rulers, angles, and colour play. On a day-to-day basis, you’ll find her designing, sewing, teaching, and writing, while maintaining her iced latte intake at an appropriate level. She’s not (usually) scared off by technology, and loves blogging and social media, so she helps look after our Guild website, Facebook group, and social media.
Ordinary Member – Charity: Alyce
Her other passion lies in teaching others to create what they love, with love, to love, so her role as charity coordinator is a great opportunity to do just that with the Guild.
