Cambridge Quilters enjoy a varied programme of activities, workshops and events, often hosting world-class speakers.  Meetings are held in the day and in the evening to suit our members and are included in the membership fee.

We sew for pleasure and for charity while some members have their own textile based businesses.  Visitors are welcome to attend meetings for a small fee.  New members are always welcome – you don’t have to be an expert!



Member Focus Averil Richards

My name is Averil Richards, I am in my mid 70’s, have 2 married sons and 7 grandchildren .  As far as I can remember back I have always sewn in one medium or another. I was fortunate that basic sewing was taught in both my primary and grammar school. By the time I left the Junior school I had made myself a skirt and blouse, though I am not saying they fitted very well! I continued to make many of my clothes because I am rather small and found it easier to make from scratch rather than try and alter 'ready mades'. more
