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.

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.
The Quilters’ Guild relies on volunteers to deliver Guild activities both nationally and locally. We now have vacancies for volunteers to take up national roles in May 2018.
