About Us!

Norfolk Quilters

Did you know?! - Norfolk Quilters was born in 1980.

  • It was the brainchild of a few ladies who wanted to encourage patchwork and quilting in Norfolk and who wished to provide more social quilting activity to ladies who belonged to the small patchwork groups which were forming around the county and within the city of Norwich. It was to be an umbrella group and hoped to enable members to meet other patch-workers and quilters at meetings arranged at a variety of venues. Two founder members are still members today and they hold Honorary Vice-President status. It hoped to teach and develop the skills of patchwork and quilting through workshops and group quilt making, in the way of the traditional "sewing bee".
  • It also hoped to reduce social isolation for those living in the more rural areas who might not otherwise meet like minded people. These two underlying ideals have not changed over the years although group quilt making is now more often undertaken by the smaller groups themselves.
