ISLAND QUILTERS

ENJOY A WIDE RANGE OF NEEDLE CRAFTS & THE ART OF PATCHWORK AND QUILTING

This happy group was started with a handful of ladies 30 years ago and at present around 65 members enjoy

the company and productivity of our weekly meetings in Studio 3.

Although we are mainly a quilting group, our members excel in all avenues of needlecraft including embroidery,

candlewicking, knitting, crochet and cross-stitch.

 

Our members enjoy a wide range of needle crafts but our main focus is to encourage and enjoy the art of patchwork

and quilting. Apart from the friendly social aspect of our meetings, and quilting for our own pleasure, we use our skills

to raise funds for local charities, donating thousands of dollars each year to support causes such as Sunshine Linus

and the local ambulance committee.

 

We also make quilts for disaster relief and for multiple local hospitals and charities. 

 

New members are always welcome, and if they need help or advice with a project, there is always a willing mentor.

 

Subscriptions:

Annual membership fee is $20. Weekly attendance fee is $4 including a morning tea.

 

Events
Our colourful quilt show is held every two years in the Matthew Flinders Gallery at the Bribie Island Community Arts Centre.
