Campden Quilters

During the current COVID 19 pandemic, we are unable to meet as a group at the Bowling Club. However, Zoom meetings are held twice a month (on normal meeting mornings) where members can keep in touch with each other and show what they have been creating!


There is also a WhatsApp group for members to join in.


If you have any queries please use the contact form under "contacts" and we will respond to you.

Welcome! 


Campden Quilters is a not-for-profit organisation formed in 2014; we are a small group of keen sewers based in and around the Chipping Campden area, our main objectives are to improve and share our quilting skills in a warm and friendly atmosphere with like-minded people


We meet at Chipping Campden Bowling Club on the first and third Thursdays of each month between 9.30 am and 12.30 pm.  When there is a 5th Thursday in the month we have an all day workshop and invite a well-known professional in the quilting world to give a presentation


 

Membership


Membership is £35 per annum and all day workshops usually cost £20/25.  Our membership is limited to 30 and comprises a broad range of experience from absolute beginners to prize-winning quilters

Venue

We chose   Chipping Campden Bowling Club as our  venue because it offers outstanding facilities and excellent car parking.  The main room where we sew is spacious with plenty of light and room to spread out.  There is also a very modern kitchen which we use as and when needed

Charities

Our aim is to complete a charity project each year. Over the past few years we have been helping charities by donating quilts made jointly by the group.  We also raised funds for The Alzheimer's Society and Campden Home Nursing.

2015 Project Linus

2016/2017 Gloucester Royal Hospital (Neonatal Unit)

2018 Help for Heroes and The Alzheimer's Society

2019 Campden Home Nursing
