As we celebrate 40 years of The Quilters’ Guild we’d like to invite you all to participate in a fun way to join in with the Guild’s birthday whilst supporting the Guild.
We all like to think that we’ll be with our family and friends at Christmas. Some of us, through no fault of our own are simply not that lucky. In 2013, poet Lemn Sissay MBE, founded The Christmas Dinner, specifically to be held for young people leaving the Care System.
Bernina’s modern quilting expert, Nicholas Ball, shows you how to create a beautiful modern style quilt for a baby.
For those of you who aren’t yet members of the Guild you may not know that, once a member, you are also eligible to join one of our five specialist groups.
