Introducing the Quilted Joy Clubhouse!
The Quilted Joy Clubhouse is a Facebook group for quilters to share their love of machine quilting. We are a creative community of friends from around the world, learning, sharing, and supporting each other in machine quilting both sit down and stand up.
The Clubhouse is a “closed group” on Facebook, meaning you have to have a Facebook account and request permission to join. Before joining you’ll have to answer a few easy questions about yourself. I want to make sure the group is full of human quilters and not robots! Members of the group can write posts and share pictures just like you normally do on Facebook. But what you share will only be seen by fellow Clubhouse members.

Live Monthly Meetings
On the first Wednesday of the month at 1pm EST I’ll be hosting a live meeting for the Clubhouse. These meetings will be broadcast simultaneously in the QJ Clubhouse Facebook group and on YouTube.
I plan to model them similarly to our monthly guild that meets in my shop. We’ll have a different program that will cover a range of topics. These topics could include different ways to quilt common blocks, how to audition quilting designs, tips and tricks for ruler work, and more.
We’ll also have a design round table and show and tell. Throughout the month I’ll be looking for pictures of unquilted tops in the QJ Clubhouse. During the design round table I’ll share ideas for how I would quilt the quilts. I’d also love it if you’d comment on the video with your ideas of how to quilt it too. And we’ll ohh and ahh over recently finished quilts that were shared in the group too!
Our first live meeting will be on Wednesday March 6 at 1:00pm EST. If you can’t tune in for the live meeting, don’t worry. We’ll save the videos in the Clubhouse and on YouTube so you can watch them whenever you want.
Share Your Love of Quilting!
My goal is for the Quilted Joy Clubhouse to be a community for machine quilting friends to come together every day. Show off your latest quilts. Ask questions when you’re feeling stumped. Share your tips and tricks that you just can’t believe you didn’t think of before.

In June, I chose a quilt for our “How I would Quilt it” segment of the Quilted Joy Clubhouse that I was very familiar with. Hometown Blooms is my version of “Sangria” by Diane Tomlinson. Claudia now has joined me in picking her own colors and making yet another version of this
Everyone has a different favorite part of the Quilted Joy Clubhouse meetings, but my favorite part has always been the Looky Loo Studio Tours! I’m just a little bit nosey and I think it’s so much fun to take a peek into another longarm quilter’s sewing studio. I’m always amazed
