About us

quiltlogo_600x6002

We are a group of people who share an interest in all things to do with patchwork and quilting; making, collecting and their history.

We meet the first Thursday of every month except January and August, at Walton Community Centre, Whitemill Lane, Stone, Staffs, ST15 0EQ at 6.45pm for a 7.15pm start.  (we occasionally have to relocate when elections take place as the hall is used by voters – please check the web site for any updates)

There is ample parking next to the centre and disabled access.

No membership is required. Admission for 2016 is still only £4.00. Just pay at the door and come in and enjoy a cuppa and biscuit (it’s a good idea to bring your own mug), show and tell, plenty of chat, and the evening’s speaker or activity. If you feel lucky have a go at the raffle which is drawn on the night.

We usually run at one or two workshops during the year, and our Soup and Sew days are proving popular, bookings are taken at the monthly meetings (a deposit is required to secure your place). We also arrange occasional coach trips to shows like Quilts UK at Malvern. We have also been volunteering as ” Quilt Angels” at our closest national show – The British Quilt & Stitch Village, held at the Uttoxeter Racecourse, usually towards the end of April.

We hope you take a few moments to browse through these pages and that we will see you at one of our meetings.

We hope to see you soon!

    Hello

    I have been trying to contact Staffordshire Quilters via email, but have been unsuccessful, so I thought I would try this route.

    I am a member of Leicestershire Quilters and currently I have the role of arranging speakers for our monthly meetings. For me trying to find speakers is getting more difficult, so I thought I would look at neighbouring quilters groups web site for inspiration. Looking at your web site you do have some interesting speakers that I am sure would appeal to our members. I have tried to look up contact details for the following people, but have been unsuccessful, so I would be grateful if you would send me their contact details, or alternatively forward my details to them.

    The people I would like to contact are as follows: Ann Jeremy

    Angela Madden

    Maggie Palmer

    Your help would be most appreciated

    Regards

    1. Hi Lynda,

      I am no longer Programme Secretary for SPQ as my term was up.
      None of the new committee members gave me their email addresses.
      I handed everything over to Nicky Griffiths, new Secretary. You can ‘phone or text her on 07816191635.

      The Yahoo address has not worked since previous sec. to me as it has gone out of date.
      I do keep website up-to-date when I have time.

      If you do not have any joy with Nicky you can get back to me on irene@jimire.myzen.co.uk

      Angela Madden does have a website which is quite informative. I did book her at FOQ last year.
      I do have Maggie Palmer’s ‘phone no. And will contact her to ask if I can give it to you.
