We are a group of quilters gathered together for quilting & sewing, interests dear to us all. We have members from across the South West of England, covering the counties of Dorset, Somerset, Devon & Cornwall. At present we have 500+ members, the majority of who also belong to smaller groups within our area. Whenever possible, we come together en-mass three times a year, Spring, Summer, & Christmas. These meetings are always enjoyable with speakers from close & afar to inspire us within quilting passions.

We publish our own colourful magazine 4 times a year, keeping us all in touch. It details what’s going on around our region, who’s been doing what. It shows photos of completed items and gives inspirational ideas for members looking for new projects.

There are many local exhibitions throughout our region, hosted by many smaller patchwork groups. There’s also the big show at Westpoint Exeter, once a year, where we have a large stand and our own displays of members work. Workshops are arranged around the region with visiting and local tutors, all at competitive rates for members. Just a small amount of what goes on is shown here, please enjoy. Should you wish to join or speak to someone, please do not hesitate to contact us.

The world of patchwork and quilting is a very generous one, where people share time, friendship, advice, fabric and of course cake!. Please come and join us.

You will find a membership form here. Membership
