About Us

The Akoma Ntoso Modern Quilt Guild of Central Indiana (ANMQG) is a Quilting Guild for people of color in the Indianapolis Metropolitan area! Many of us are new to quilting and we welcome the chance to explore this new arena of personal and collective creativity. While we were created to bring together people of color, we welcome a diverse membership.

On Friday, February 2, 2018 we began the process of establishing our own quilting guild right here in Indianapolis, IN by joining The Modern Quilt Guild, a national organization whose mission is to support and encourage the growth and development of modern quilting through art, education, and community. The Modern Quilt Guild is made up of more than 200 guilds around the world. We are the second MQG in the Indianapolis area. Our anniversary date is April 7, 2018!

Two and one half hour General Meetings are conducted monthly. The Central Indiana Akoma Ntoso Modern Quilt Guild meets on the 4th Sunday of the Month. Parts of the monthly meetings are reserved for presentations given by selected speakers who generally conduct the workshops. Every meeting will have a Show and Tell section for all members to share their current projects.

All general meetings are held at the Harper J Ransburg Branch YMCA located at 501 N Shortridge Rd, Indianapolis, IN 46219 from 3:30pm to 5:45pm unless otherwise noted.

Snow/Bad Weather Policy

In the event of snow or inclement weather, we ask that you pay close attention to the local news. Please use your own judgment as to the road conditions in your area. If it is too dangerous to go to the corner store, it is too dangerous to come to the scheduled meeting!
