Welcome to Orpington Quilters

We are a thriving group of enthusiastic quilters who meet once a month to discuss and extend our knowledge of what we like doing best - patchwork and quilting!

 

We are affiliated to The Quilters' Guild of the British Isles.  Region 2, which covers Kent, Surrey and Sussex.

 

Visitors are welcome to all meetings except our Annual General Meeting in April and the Christmas buffet in December.

 

We charge £5.00 to visitors at meetings when we have a speaker, and £4 on other evenings.  Always included are tea, coffee and refreshments.

 

New members welcomed.

At our September 2019 meeting we invited a new and very creative quilter, Pascale Michalski, to speak to us about her stunning art quilts, her imaginative designs and techniques.  She brought along many of her award winning designs and treated us to a fascinating talk about how she has transferred her painting and drawing skills to textiles.  Visit our News page.

Have you taken this lockdown time as an opportunity to get to work on some of those unfinished projects or, indeed, started on something new?

Let us see what you have been working on.

Email your photos to me (Rhona) and I will upload them to our Show n' Tell page and on our new Block of the month page.
