Join us Sunday, March 17, for a Special Lecture from Joe Cunningham

The Chicago MQG is delighted to host prolific quilter and popular lecturer Joe Cunningham for our meeting on Sunday, March 17! This lecture is free for members and $10 for guests.


Joe Cunningham, also known as Joe the Quilter, began making quilts professionally in 1979 after a ten-year career as a musician in Michigan. His early mentors were steeped in the history and traditions of quilting, leading Cunningham to a life of study in quilt history and a love of traditional technique. Over the years, his quilts have evolved into a unique, personal style. His quilts are in the permanent collections of museums, as well as in numerous private collections.

Cunningham has written eleven books on quilts and a column for the national magazine The Quilt Life. He has been featured in numerous quilt television shows and gives talks about quilts and teaches workshops nationwide.

Cunningham will present a lecture and trunk show about his career in quilting. This special meeting will have time for show and tell, so bring your latest finishes to share with the group!

The meeting will be held at our regular time and location, from 2-5pm in the Rush Oak Park Hospital Centennial Room.

All meetings are 2-5 pm on the third Sunday of the month, unless otherwise noted.

This month's meeting is on Sunday, March 17, 2019
