ISLAND QUILTERS

ENJOY A WIDE RANGE OF NEEDLECRAFTS & 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 needlecrafts 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 money each year to support causes such as Sunshine Linus and the local ambulance committee.

 

We also make quilts for disaster relief and for local hospitals such as Caboolture Hospital and make beanies for babies

at the Mater Hospital. 

 

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.
