Quilting and Sewing for Others


Our group supports a small number of local initiatives for those in need. We have in past years created charity quilts for national charities.


Find out more about our initiatives and how you can get involved below.


The Rosie - Addenbrookes

For the past ten years we have been making cot quilts for the Neo Natal Unit. They are used on the wards and every mother takes one home. The quilts are made by members of Cambridge Quilters, other quilt groups including Barton Mills, Orwell and Great Chesterford. A number of individuals also contribute quilts they and their sewing groups have made. We deliver fifty quilts each month – 6,000 so far.  Last year we made festive quilts and Christmas stockings for the unit.  Instructions for the cot quilts can be found below.

Breast Care Unit - Addenbrookes

This project has been running for eight years. Heart shaped cushions and drainage bags are made for patients who have had surgery. There is also a changing display of quilts in the waiting room.


"I cannot tell you how much comfort your pillow has been to me. Please pass on my thanks to your lovely group."
