Conference & AGM

Meet Guild Specialist Groups at Conference

The Quilters' Guild Conference - a Celebration of Quilting!

What happens at a Quilters' Guild Conference?

  • Over 400 quilters get together to have fun
  • They attend lectures by well-known quilters from the UK and abroad 
  • They attend half-day or full-day workshops to learn new techniques and try out new ideas
  • Members enjoy a gala dinner with a well-known speaker
  • There are trips to local places of interest
  • Lots of quilts are on show in the exhibitions   
  • Members can top up their stash with invited traders
  • The Guild's Annual General Meeting gives everyone the chance to ask questions
  • .... and there is chance to chat and mingle and meet and immerse yourself in three days of quilts and quilting! 

Is Conference for members only?
Non-members are welcome to attend most Guild events (although they pay more than members) but Conference is the one big event that's just for members.  However, non-members need not despair!  Anyone can join The Guild and meet up with their quilting friends at Conference.

A Big Thank You ....
to the Conference team. Each year the Conference is organised by a voluntary Conference team from the region in which the Conference is held, supported by the National Conference Officer. Thank you to all our volunteers on Conference teams - we couldn't do it without you!

Looking Ahead
Our 38th Conference and AGM will be held in Torquay, 31 March - 2 April 2017.  See you there.
