St Peters Group

The St Peters group is not confined to patchwork and quilting alone- we have knitters, teddy and toy makers, embroidery, cross stitch, bag makers as well- anything in the craft world. While we don’t teach classes, there everyone is only too willing to help or advise someone on how to get started on a project and sharing their knowledge.

The St Peters group meets on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the each month except during December and January in the St Peters Church Hall on the corner of Hillside Road and Baker Street, South Dunedin from 10am until 2pm.

Bring your lunch and whatever you are working on.

Tea and coffee provided. There are good facilities for heating up lunch in the winter.

Feel free to join this warm and friendly group. Every one is welcome. You do not have to be a member of Quilters and Patchworkers of Otago (Inc.) to join the St Peters group. You are welcome to join the group and do any hand craft. Cost $4.00. Ask for Cynthia.

Community Quilt Day Saturday 19 October 2019

at Bayfield High School 9.30am to 4.30pm No charge

Join Dianne and Daphne for the day. Daphne has cut out block for 2 quilts tops so bring your sewing machine and start sewing- the hard work has been done: the colours have been chosen and the cutting has been done. You just need to set up your machine and start sewing.

Morning tea will be provided.   Bring your lunch.

 

Quilters & Patchworkers of Otago make quilts for give away to individuals and community groups that need the extra comfort a quilt can give. We give away approximately 60-80 quilts a year. While most of these quilts are given to organisations which give them to needy families in their care some are also given to charities for fundraising raffles.

We receive lovely letters back from the recipients many of whom receive a quilt often at a time when they are feeling at their most vulnerable.
Members make the quilts using donated fabric and giving of their own time.

Fabric and batting is available if you would like to work on Community Quilts.

Dianne has a variety of quilt tops to quilt  and batting and backings have also been cut so are ready to be be pinned and quilted.   There is lots of fabric available in the Community Quilt stash so try out that pattern you have always wanted to make.   There are also a number of panels which can have quilt blocks added around the edges or cup up and individual blocks sashed.

Come along and make or finish quilts which will be donated to the Community.

Camp in the City 8 to 10 November 2019

Camp in the City provides a whole weekend working on projects that you either want to start or complete and you get to go home and sleep in your own bed.

Camp in the City operates from Friday 5.30pm to 9pm, Saturday 9am to 9pm & Sunday 9am to 4pm.

We’ve found it is a great way to get together and have a whole weekend working on projects that you either want to start or complete while others also keen on quilting and patch working do the same – it couldn’t be better.

If you can not come for the whole weekend feel free to come along for the Friday night or either Saturday or Sunday.  You could pop in for a few hours over the weekend. You can leave your machine set up over the weekend and come and go as it suits you.

It’s fair to say we have a lot of fun!  Its a great way to check out what the others are doing.
