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.

 

 

Member Focus Janet Allen

My interest in craft and sewing has been with me since childhood, though there were few opportunities to practise. My grandmother, who I never met, was a seamstress in a milliner’s shop in Poplar. My mum made many of my clothes and was never far away from a sewing machine.

I have a deep interest in colour, shape and line and am just as happy painting and drawing. Fabric, however has a texture which is very pleasing.  Other crafts I do are tapestry, knitting, and cross stitch.  I think of myself, however, as first a gardener then a quilter.
