Welcome to Illawarra Quilters Inc.

Take a look at the wonderful range of workshops being offered by Illawarra Quilters in 2017. Classes will be taught by Rachaeldaisy, Pam Pearce and Wendy Williams. For details refer to the menu under workshops.

The Illawarra region is located on the South Coast of NSW, just beyond Sydney, where the escarpment meets the sea, Wollongong is the major city. Illawarra Quilters is dedicated to fostering the art of quilt making, both traditional and contemporary, offering friendship and advice along the way. Workshops and retreats with local and international tutors are conducted each year, promoting new techniques and breaking new boundaries.

Illawarra Quilters was formed in 1987 with 45 members; over the years our membership has increased to over 160. Our first Exhibition held in 1988, has become a regular event held every two years, showcasing members' work and raising funds to support local community institutions. Illawarra Quilters produce over 100 quilts each year to donate to people in need in the community.
