The New Face of the NOVA Modern Quilt Guild

Check out the new face of the NOVA Modern Quilt Guild!

Unfortunately the old website wasn't cutting it for membership applications and I was spending way too much time with technical support. This website is geared more towards attracting new members to our guild. You can proudly send potential members to this website and know they will be looking at something reflective of the modern aesthetic we love so much, get the information they need about modern quilting, find out what events are coming up, check out our blog, and contact us.

Our About Us page features useful information about Modern Quilting and The Modern Quilt Guild.
The Photos page will feature work from all of us. If you haven't started gathering photos already, please plan to do so. You can send them to me by email (nweaver529 [at] gmail [dot] com) along with the title of the photo and the description you would like to appear on the web. If you blogged about the photo please also include the URL for the blog post in the description.
The Events page lists upcoming events for the next 3 months. As a month 'expires' we will update the page to reflect the next 3 months.
The Contact page allows potential members to contact us through the webpage.
I threw this together very quickly so please let me know if you see any content that needs to be updated or added and let me know if you want any pages added.

Moving forward, we will need to decide if we want to track and communicate with members on our blog, open a ning website, use a google groups account, or some other account I don't know of. I will have my hubs take a look at our website to see if there's a way to do it from there but I didn't see one. Update: I think I can figure out a way to continue using the old website for membership! We'll just use the Member application and not the Apply application though.

In other news, I also purchased matching business cards for our guild from
I made them to be very generic so that any of us could pass them out to potential guild members. I selected colors that coordinated with our current web color scheme and a picture from the web as well. When it's time to order more, we will select from the pictures you send me to put up on the web.

I hope you like the changes!

Happy Quilting!
