Welcome to Essendon QuiltersSharing our love of quilting
We meet regularly to explore the art and craft of quilting.
Visitors and new members are most welcome at our monthly meetings.
Our site has two levels:
PUBLIC - available for everyone
MEMBERS ONLY - available when you join our group (login required)
Public Health Response:
All Quilters, that are part of the Victorian Stitching fraternity, are to be congratulated for hanging in with the many public health restrictions. Some of our special activities cancelled and/or deferred include the Quilt Show, workshops, Paint Chip Challenge, and the Annual Retreat.
We have also sought and received permission to defer our Annual General Meeting. In the same vein, the membership subscription will not be due until 2021.
Melbourne is on track with the Government’s Roadmap out of restrictions. When we can recommence we are insured and have an active membership of Vic Quilters to mid-2021.
We look forward to being able to stitch together again as soon as the Government says it’s safe to do so.
