Leaving a Legacy to The Quilters' Guild

The Bailey Gallery at the Quilt Museum and Gallery. The costs of setting up the Quilt Museum and Gallery were met by a legacy left by Barbara Bailey.

Leave a Legacy for the Future

When you are making your will, remember the pleasure that patchwork and quilting has given you and leave a legacy to The Quilters' Guild. A legacy will support The Guild’s work in making sure that future generations learn about and enjoy patchwork and quilting and that the Quilters' Guild Collection of historic and contemporary quilts will be available for future quilters to enjoy.

Talk to Us

The Guild would be happy to talk to you about leaving a legacy.  It is particularly important to talk to us if you want to leave a quilt or quilts to The Guild, as we cannot guarantee that quilts left to The Guild will be taken into the Quilters' Guild Collection. 

We would advise you to use a qualified solicitor to make your will. This will ensure that your wishes are carried out in the way you would like them to be. You can leave a fixed amount or a percentage of your estate to The Guild. Legacies can be left in cash, property or shares to ‘The Quilters’ Guild of the British Isles, registered charity no. 1067361’. If you are making your will in Scotland, The Quilters' Guild is registered as a charity in Scotland, reg. no. SC043174. 

The Guild’s President, Chief Executive or any trustee would be happy to talk to you about leaving a legacy to The Quilters' Guild.  Just ring, write or email us.
