Here at STC Craft, we're excited about the modern quilting movement as it's attracting all sorts of different crafters to the quilting world. When we heard that the Modern Quilt Guild was organizing a conference for quilters, we were immediately on board.
QuiltCon, which was held in Austin, Texas last weekend, brought together some of the biggest stars in contemporary stitching. Fittingly, the keynote speaker was designer, STC Craft author, and "mother of modern quilting" Denyse Schmidt, whose stunning quilts were featured in a special exhibit that we were proud to sponsor.
STC Craft was also represented by Heather Ross, who captivated crowds with her demo; Joelle Hoverson, who judged the show's quilt competition; and our own Melanie Falick, who offered her unique insight during a panel on craft book publishing.
You can check out more of our photos on Facebook, and for a full recap of the show, we recommend Meg Cox's excellent newsletter feature. Our final thought on QuiltCon? We hear there will be another one in 2015. Count us in!
