Young Quilters

The Quilters' Guild welcomes members aged from 5 to 18 years as Young Quilters.  Membership costs only £5. 

YQs have their own dedicated web site at and a YQ Newsletter is sent out to all Young Quilters twice a year.

Every region has a Young Quilters Officer who arranges events for YQs in the region.  In addition, YQs can attend workshops at The Guild's annual Conference, which takes place in a different part of the country each year.  All Young Quilters can enter a quilt into the annual YQ Challenge, with entries shown in an exhibition at the Conference.

There are also special categories for Young Quilters to enter at the Festival of Quilts held at the NEC near Birmingham each year.

We are always grateful of help with Young Quilters workshops so if you are interested in helping young people learn about patchwork and quilting, please contact the Regional Co-ordinator in your region.
