The Sue Belton Memorial Prize

Sue Belton was a quilt teacher in the early days of The Guild, who died quite suddenly and left money to further the educational work of The Guild. This Prize, worth £600, is aimed at Guild members who are novice quilters and wish to learn more and improve their skills in patchwork, quilting or applique. To be eligible you must have started quilting no more than five years before applications are judged at the Conference and AGM.  The Prize is awarded at the Conference and AGM every two years in odd-numbered years to fund education activities. The closing date for applications is 28 February of the same year. Download the Sue Belton Memorial Prize Guidelines or contact The Guild for more information.
