Contacting the Guild

Due to Covid-19 restrictions our staff are now involved in remote working so we would be very grateful if you would email any urgent enquiries rather than calling York. 


Membership is open to all quilters, whatever your level of experience.  It’s a great time to join when just beginning: there’s so much to learn!
