The 2018 Get Creative Festival becomes a national week-long celebration of all that is creative. It is a wonderful opportunity to get involved, share your skills and learn something new.
How well do you know your quilt styles and blocks?
The 1718 Silk Coverlet is our most treasured iconic piece of patchwork within The Quilters’ Guild Collection and we’re very excited to celebrate its 300th birthday this year.
Sometimes I lie awake at night pondering the great conundrums of the universe such as: if the speed of light is 670 million miles per hour, what is the speed of darkness? Or is darkness really light travelling backwards? But in my worst moments I wonder: what if there were no new fabric designs?
The Quilters’ Guild is dedicated to preserving patchwork and quilting heritage, and the objects within The Quilters’ Guild Collection require dedicated care and handling to ensure they are preserved for as long as possible.
Quilting is the fastening together of two or more layers of fabric, with a layer of wadding or padding in between, either by stitching or knots.
The Quilters’ Guild Conference and AGM is a splendid gathering of quilters, this year we’ll be in Newcastle for the first time in our 39 year history, enjoying much of what the North East has to offer.
