Janome have long had a special relationship with quilters. Their recent collaborative projects with designer and Guild member Jenni Smith during the lockdown have been designed to encourage more interest in the craft we all love.
The Festival of Quilts and The Quilters’ Guild are opening up their annual competition to first-time quilters with a brand new Complete Beginners category.
The Quilters’ Guild Museum Collection is fortunate to have a number of interesting and unusual pieces of patchwork and quilted clothing which date from the 18th and 19th centuries, including two pockets.
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.
For those of you attending the Festival of Quilts at the NEC this month, we’d like to invite you to have your say by voting for your favourite quilt.
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.
The Festival of Quilts is Europe’s number one quilt show attracting 24,000 visitors from all over the world. Showcasing thousands of magnificent quilts, the show celebrates patchwork and quilting in all its forms.
Join us for a little light distraction and a chance to win prizes.
