Welcome to The Quilters' Guild, Region 14
The region covers a wide area from Sheffield in South Yorkshire, Scarborough on the east coast, Harrogate, York, Teeside, and North Yorkshire.
We have currently around 475 members and publish our newsletter, The Fat Quarter three times a year.
The Region 14 committee, supported by local members, offer a broad range of activities, including coffee mornings, workshops and international talks. Our regional quilting groups are very active and hold regular meetings and shows, to help local charities as well as the Guild. We also support Young Quilters(YQ) and arrange regular workshops for YQ members in the Region.
During the Covid Pandemic members and non members, from within region 14 and beyond, have commented on how much they have enjoyed the broad range of virtual events on offer. These have included coffee mornings, post card swops, online workshops and international talks. During 2021 and beyond it is our intention to blend both real and virtual activities to support the enjoyment and development of quilting and textile art in our region and of course to meet up with and make new friends.
For those of you who have been Guild members for a year and would enjoy helping to organize such activities, do please consider joining the committee. Fresh ideas and helping hands are always welcome and we do have a lot of fun. It's always interesting to meet others who share our fascination with the art of patchwork and quilting.
