About Our Group

Quilters & Patchworkers of Otago (Q & P) has a good range of members, young and old, city and rural quilters.

We hold work days mainly on Saturdays but sometimes on a Sunday where you can work on your own projects.

Three times a year we hold a weekend where you can patch and quilt.  You get to sleep in your own bed. Once a year you can get away from it all and spend the weekend at our retreat. You can sew from 5.30 Friday to 4pm Sunday- the meals are supplied and you could sew all the time if you did not need to sleep.

Over the years Q &P has hosted quilt makers of international and national acclaim and is always actively pursuing opportunities to promote quilting.  We have been fortunate to classes tutored by our own members who are teaching within NZ and internationally.

We also run an exhibition bi-annually.

Local charitable organisations benefit from the generosity of the group members with regular donations of quilts.
