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:
Currently there are no Essendon Quilters Meetings or activities until further notice as part of the Covid-19 Public Health response. We encourage all our members and the quilting fraternity to contribute to the health and wellbeing of our community by practising good hygiene, social distancing and self-isolation if required.
Essendon Quilters will continue to inform members of the impact of this Public health emergency on our activities as the authorities take actions that are too keep the community safe. In the meantime we are sure that there are a pile of UFO’s to be tackled. Please post your progress #essendonquilters
