Mole Valley Quilters are a group of people of all ages with a shared interest in patchwork and quilting. Members enjoy creating a variety of projects: small wall hangings embellished with thread and beads, bags, purses and cushion covers, often given as gifts, and king sized bed quilts patched from patterns or their own design, quilted either on a frame or by hand. We are affiliated to the UK Quilters Guild and many of our members participate in regional quilting events.
Our monthly meetings take place on the first Thursday of each month at 7.15 for 7.30pm in the Harrison Room, Old Barn Hall, Church Road, Bookham, KT23 3PQ. The annual programme includes inspiring talks and workshops from expert quilters, workshops run by our talented members, and regular time for Showing & Telling about our work. Take a look at the Events Calendar on the Bookham Village website to find out more.
There are also regular house groups in member’s homes for shared or individual quilting projects. To find out more about these contact Chris Hewitt, 01372 454102
On 24th and 25th October 2014 we are, once again, organising a Quilting Exhibition in the lovely setting of St Nicolas Church, Church Road, Great Bookham, KT23 3PD.
We are delighted that Assistant Curate Barbara McDonald will open the event at noon, 24th October and pleased to be able support Surrey Air Ambulance with the proceeds from the raffle with the 1st prize of a bed quilt made by our members.
Profits from refreshments in the Church Room will go to the Rainbow Trust and there will be demonstrations on quilting techniques throughout the exhibition. On the sales table you will find a variety of hand crafted items to buy, many made with Halloween and Christmas in mind, and at prices to suit small purses. We look forward to seeing you either Friday 24th October noon to 5pm and Saturday 25th October 9am to 4pm.
Come and take a look at our work in the Barn Hall on Bookham Village Day in June when we will decorate the stage with Mole Valley Quilters’ wonderful projects and raffle another lovely quilt to help to support the Barn Hall.
