Quilting & Sewing Group

Annan Quilting & Sewing Group

The Group was established in 2000 to foster a shared interest in varied aspects of needlework.

 

During the past 15 plus years members have enjoyed making many individual pieces.

 

The Group enjoys contributing to various local and national causes. This includes a double bed quilt (see photo) which was raffled with the proceeds of that and a Coffee Morning, £1,250 in total, being donated to Cancer Research Scotland; a number of children's quilts, wall hangings, cushions, pictures etc. which were gifted to the Robins House Childrens' Hospice in Balloch on Loch Lomond, and a second double bed quilt which was also raffled with the proceeds of £1,400 being given to Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland.

 

A third quilt was made and raffled with the proceeds of £1000 donated to the RNLI.

 

The Group meets twice monthly.

 

Further information:

Its current membership of 21 is about as large as the nature of the activity will comfortably allow, but if you are interested in our work and perhaps joining us in the future please contact Margaret McCallum (01461 202104) for further information.
