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!

As the only beginner in this slot throughout the year, I was working at my own pace through a well-thought out programme of increasingly complex block designs and techniques. Gradually some of the terms which had baffled me at Cambridge Quilters’ meetings such as needle-turned applique and foundation piecing became clear.
