The Quilters’ Guild is open to everyone and is run by its members.

We bring together quilters in a spirit of friendship and learning. We promote quilt-making in all its forms across the UK.

As an educational charity we preserve the heritage of quilting and work to ensure a vibrant future for the craft.

The Quilters’ Guild is the national organisation for people involved in patchwork and quilting, whether you are a beginner, an experienced quilter or someone interested in the history and development of patchwork and quilting. Find out more about membership here.

The Guild was founded by a group of committed quilters in 1979.  You can read about the history of The Quilters' Guild here.
