The Quilters Guild works with a number of partners, bringing benefits to members and providing activities that we could not achieve on our own.
We work with Upper Street Events Ltd. to ensure that the Festival of Quilts is the most exciting quilt show in Europe.
The Guild has images of quilts from The Guild Collection with the Bridgeman Art Library, providing the opportunity for people to use these images worldwide and bringing a contribution to Guild funds.
Many retailers give discount to Guild members on production of their Guild membership card. Click here to see a list of retailers who give discount.
