Quilting Exhibition @ Methodist Church
Oct 2 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Following their incredibly successful first exhibition in 2018, Westbury Quilters’ second exhibition is being held to celebrate 30 years of the club’s existence and will show some of the varied items that members of the WQ have produced during the last three years. There will be cushions, bags, wall-hangings and quilts of all sizes, all of which demonstrates a mixture of both hand and machine sewing.

Admission is £3, there will be refreshments available, a sale table and a trader stand.

WQ is a friendly group comprising up to 50 members who meet monthly to exchange ideas on patchwork and quilting, introducing new techniques with invited afternoon speakers or with tutors for day-long workshops.

The group support a different charity each year and this year, the choice is Alzheimer’s Support, Wiltshire with the profit from this exhibition going to this worthy cause.  Members also make quilts for the Teenage and Young Adult Cancer Unit in Bristol, make quilts for incubators in neonatal units and special post-op cushions for local charities and hospitals.  They also collect old sewing machines which are refurbished and sent to Africa to help girls earn a living from sewing.

More information on joining the group can be found by contacting Susan Stone (membership secretary) at west.stone1968@gmail.com
