We are delighted to announce the launch of The Virtual Competition 2020, a brand-new initiative to replace the standard competition Upper Street Events usually host at the Festival of Quilts.
Join us as we explore the wonderful world of British quilting heritage through our exclusive series of patterns inspired by The Quilters’ Guild Museum Collection.
The Quilters’ Guild Museum Collection features quilts and coverlets that have been created using any of the allied crafts of patchwork, quilting and appliqué.
How do we define appliqué? Basically it is applying a shaped piece of fabric to a base fabric.
Get to know The Guild better by meeting our talented members! We have interesting and inspiring members all over the country doing amazing sewing and we want you to be able to share their work.
One of the wonderful benefits of being a member of The Guild is the opportunity to attend our fantastic members-only special regional events. In February, lucky Guild members from across the UK had the opportunity to attend a free and exclusive Liberty launch event held at Winterbourne House and Garden, University of Birmingham.
Often when people volunteer, they are aiming to help others and give back to the community without looking for any material or financial gain while doing so.
We are thrilled to have recently acquired the contemporary wholecloth quilt ‘Slip 1, Knit 1’, made by Sandie Lush for The Quilters’ Guild of the British Isles’ 7th National juried exhibition in 1999, which was held at Lord’s Cricket Ground.
Get Creative Festival shines a light on all the great cultural activity that takes place on a regular basis in local communities and encourages people to try their hand at something new and creative.
