Our webmaster has been busy and a new look website has been established. The aim of the site will be the same a the last one – to keep our members and interested visitors up to date with club events, information on how to join, guild history and more.
We’re also working on adding more photography to the new website and this new design will allow for that. Your feedback and comments on the changes are most welcome.
Quilt Till You Wilt is a good opportunity to work from 9am to 9pm without interruptions on your project/projects or get help, suggestions from others or just relax & chat while you sew.
Quilt Till you Wilt starts at 9am and goes through until 9pm. Held at Bayfield High School, it costs $10 for the day.
Bring your lunch and something to share for morning and afternoon tea. Tea and coffee are supplied. You can bring their own dinner, or go out for dinner- its your choice.

Natural Wonders of the World
Quilters and Patchworkers of Otago were excited to recently host an exhibition of “Natural Wonders of the World”, an international quilt challenge.
Aotearoa Quilters were invited to participate in the International challenge by NHQG – a Japanese quilting group. Thirty quilters from New Zealand, France and Japan are involved, ninety in total.
Each quilter was given a topic – a natural wonder. The same topics were used in each of the three countries resulting in three different perspectives on each topic.
The quilts have been exhibited in Japan and are now here in New Zealand. They will travel to France in August for their exhibition in September.
All the quilts from New Zealand, Japan and France, 30 from each country, were displayed in Dunedin in May 2018.
