QGBI Enterprises

QGBI Enterprises stand at Festival of Quilts

As a registered charity, The Quilters' Guild needs to have a trading company for its associated trading activities. Our trading company is registered as Festival of Quilts Ltd. and was set up in 1998 to deal with the organisation and delivery of the very first Festival of Quilts held at the Indoor Cricket School at Lords, London, in 1999.  The company now trades as QGBI Enterprises in order not to cause confusion with Festival of Quilts held at the NEC.

QGBI Enterprises undertakes trading activities on behalf of The Quilters' Guild, including: 

  • running the on-line Quilters' Guild shop
  • providing goods for sale at quilt shows and regional events
  • the production of The Quilter, including the advertising and printing
  • delivering the annual Quilters' Guild Conference

Festival of Quilts Ltd. is registered as a company limited by guarantee, registered no. 3538705.  The company currently has three directors:

  • Judith Dursley (Trustee / Sales Director)
  • Anne Gosling (Guild Treasurer)
  • Linda Bilsborrow (Trustee)

Catherine Candlin is employed as Retail Manager and also manages advertising in The Quilter. Contact Catherine at commercial@quiltersguild.org.uk
