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!

We had hoped to resume Friday meetings in Grantchester but the rule of six has prevented us from meeting.  Wednesday evening meetings will remain online and we will email members with details of anticipated speakers and log in details.

 My quilting journey started about three years ago. I had made a one-off quilt for the Cambridge Open Studio, an annual event, that I was participating in for the first time since moving to Cambridge. This quilt, a Janet Clare design of sea gulls flying across the face of it hung proudly in my home amongst my paintings and prints for sale. I was thrilled that a buyer purchased it, sang its praises and wanted me to personally help him hang it in his home as a wall hanging. Since then, the painting and the printmaking have become secondary to quilt making and my art studio has become less furnished with easels, paints, inks and canvases but more fabric, threads, needles, rotary cutters and of course a new sewing machine. more
