Change in Meeting Location

The Omaha Modern Quilt Guild is moving!


Beginning with our August meeting on Tuesday, August 7, 2018, we will hold our monthly Meetings at Sew Creative (2809 S. 125th Avenue in Omaha). Sew Creative is located in Westwood Plaza off 125th & West Center Road and is right next to Office Depot.

Nothing else has changed! We will still meet the first Tuesday of the month (except for January and July) from 6:30pm - 8:30pm. Doors still open at 6pm so come early to socialize and shop!

July Sewcial!

Just a reminder that due to the July 4th holiday, we will not have our regular monthly meeting at AccuQuilt on Tuesday, July 3. Instead, we will have an informal sewcial at the Milton R. Abrahams Library Branch at 5111 N. 90th Street (on the southeast corner of 90th & Fort).


Bring your sewing machine, sewing supplies and a project to work on. Don't forget your show & tell. (We love to see what everyone has been working on!) If you'd like, you can bring a snack to share. Join us for the entire time or just part of the evening. All are welcome!
