Join as an Affiliated Group

Group Affiliation for independent quilt groups provides Public Liability Insurance cover for group meetings, events and exhibitions and costs £75 per year. Please note that your group must be involved in patchwork and quilting and the maximum size of group we are able to accept is 100.  Becoming an affiliated group does not bestow personal Guild membership on the individuals within the group.  There are many added benefits to becoming a full member of the Quilters' Guild, please see the section 'Benefits of joining' by following the link in the left hand column.

In addition to insurance cover, Affiliated Groups receive:

  • a copy of The Quilter every quarter for the group to share
  • a copy of your regional newsletter
  • 20% discount on pre-booked group visits to the Quilters' Guild Collection
