Stitch Modern, the East Bay Modern Quilt Guild’s 2nd annual quilt exhibit is almost here! The show will be held at the Piedmont Center for the Arts, where it will be on view to the public during regular gallery hours (Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 12-3), as well as during Stitch Modern Special Events.
