The Canterbury Quilters now meet from 10 am to 3 pm on alternate Thursdays at the Community Centre in Tenterden Drive.

We have fourteen ladies in the group. We make quilts for disadvantaged children or those who may be spending time in hospital, or anyone in need of a hug! Incubator quilts, covers and laundry bags for premature babies were requested by local hospitals and we have made quite a few! Our other project has been making 'fiddle' quilts for people with dementia. These are made from squares of different fabric textures and adorned with various beads, zips, pockets, ribbons and buttons. They have been well received at Bridge Haven Care Home, Meadow View Care Home in Hersden, Fisher Ward at K &C Hospital, Conner’s House in Canterbury and there is a pile of 12 waiting to go to the Mirimar Care Home in Beltinge.

Although members are very generous in donating fabric, we always welcome any zips, buttons, lace, fabric, ribbons and thread, so if anyone is having a bit of a spring clean and comes across anything that we might find useful, we would be very grateful.

Our next meeting will be on February 22nd and we would welcome anyone who would like to pop into the Community Centre to see exactly what we get up to! I’m happy to come and pick up anything if that would be more convenient.

For more information, please contact Marion Fox by telephone 01227 455697 or email via this link.

Below, you can see some of the quilts, which have been recently donated to a care home for people with dementia.
