June 2021 Meeting and Lecture

Rescheduled from April - 

The Charlotte Modern Quilt Guild is hosting a virtual lecture by Libs Elliott on June 29th at 7pm ET. Her lecture topic will be “Quilting with Code.”  Libs Elliott is known for using computer code and algorithms to create her random quilt patterns. Libs will discuss her ongoing exploration of how technology can transform a traditional craft into modern, functional art. She will show examples of her work and give attendees a peek into her process.

Libs Elliott is a textile artist and designer exploring the intersection of technology and traditional craft by using generative design to build handmade quilts. A deep appreciation for craftsmanship, design history and future-focused applications are all reflected in her work. She studied Material Art & Design at OCAD University.  She has exhibited her work and done speaking engagements internationally and she designs fabric collections for Andover Fabrics. She lives and works in Toronto, Canada. Explore her work at https://www.libselliott.com/ 

There is no charge for the lecture for members and no need to register.  There will be a $10 charge for non-members.  Registration will remain open until June 27th or until we reach our registration limit.  Members and registered guests will be sent the zoom link the week prior to the meeting.

The Guild will conduct a business meeting at 6:30pm ET.  Libs Elliott’s lecture will begin promptly at 7pm ET.
