North Hants Quilters are a friendly bunch of quilters, sixty five in number, all ages, all levels of experience. We meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month (except August), from 7:00pm to 9:30pm (prompt 7:30 start), at the Everest Community College in Basingstoke (CLICK FOR DETAILS).
Visitors are welcome at our evenings (with the exception of the AGM), whether they are old hands or new to quilting. We do ask visitors for a contribution of £5 towards the cost of the evening.
Annual membership is £35 per year, our membership year starts in June.
At our fortnightly meetings we usually take time to enjoy a cup of tea/coffee and a biscuit along with a chat with fellow members and a show and tell of members work when time allows. (We ask that show and tell quilts be kept for meetings when we donít have a speaker Ė giving us plenty of time to ask questions after their talk and enjoy the quilts they bring to show us)
We offer a mixed and enjoyable schedule of evening meetings, which include speakers, patchwork shops for retail therapy, mini-workshops, information sharing and hands on patchwork evenings. We also arrange coach trips to shows or quilting shops as well as workshops and sew-ins.
We have an extensive library of patchwork and quilting books available for loan to members (CLICK FOR LIBRARY LIST). The library is funded by our raffle, which is drawn at each meeting and always offers many patchwork and quilting related prizes to tempt us to buy a raffle ticket or three. We also have a quilt frame available for quilt stretching.
We do hope you will be able to join us at a meeting soon and we look forward to meeting you in person.
