In line with COVID 19 lock down requirements there will be no meetings of the guild until further notice.
Keep safe, keep cheerful and keep sewing - aren't we all so pleased to have our fabric stash now. Robyn and Irene are working on BoM to entertain us over coming weeks. These will appear on the relevant page for download and you will be advised via email when they are ready. A newsletter will go out to everyone in a few days time - I just need 24 hours to recover from the stress of trying to get back home from the South Island before lock down, and then I will have lots of time to find new Youtube videos etc to keep our virtual community humming.
Sewing shops and Spotlight be warned that there will be stash replacement therapy buying once this lock down is over and you will need to have plenty of fabric and notions on hand!
Situated on the beautiful Kapiti Coast of New Zealand we are a diverse group of quilters and fibre artists with the love of quilting as the thread which brings us together. Meetings are held twice a month at Waikanae Bridge Rooms, Elizabeth Street, Waikanae. This means we have both a day and an evening meeting to suit the needs of all members. Interesting speakers, Show and Tell and helpful hints mean we are always inspired at our meetings over the year. Day meetings are held on the third Tuesday of the month at 10a.m. Evening meetings are held on the first Thursday of the month at 7.15pm. A Saturday Quilting & Craft day is held on a Saturday on some months of the year. Next meeting dates are advertised in the relevant section of the website - see sidebar navigation.

Visitors are welcome to our monthly meetings- people can attend two free sessions but are then expected to become members if they wish to participate further.
Classes are held throughout the year where we can learn new techniques or 'relearn' them as the case may be. Classes cost $15 for members or $40 for non members where spaces are available.
Community Quilts Group - Our Community Quilts project makes quilts which are available when a crisis or time of hardship happens in the community. These quilting days are held every two months on a Saturday from 10am - about 2.30pm but you can attend for all or part of this time.
