The Quilters' Guild welcomes members aged from 5 to 18 years as Young Quilters. For more information visit https://www.youngquilters.org.uk/about/
Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) we are giving young people aged 5-18 one year of free membership. This offer will be available until 28th February 2021. We hope Young Quilters enjoy this membership and it keeps them engaged in sewing and textiles during this difficult time.
YQs have their own dedicated web site at www.youngquilters.org.uk and a YQ Newsletter is sent out to all Young Quilters twice a year. For our youngish quilters aged between 14 and 18 there is also a weekly blog on www.youngishquilters.org.uk
Young Quilters have the opportunity to attend workshops in their local and all other regions as well as at the Festival of Quilts at the NEC Birmingham every August. They also have the opportunity to enter quilts in our various competitions and win exciting prizes! Look on the YQ website for information about the AGM Challenge and Festival competition.
We are always grateful of help with Young Quilters workshops so if you are interested in helping young people learn about patchwork and quilting, please contact the Regional Co-ordinator in your region.
