Kippen Quilters

During the 2017-2018 quilting sessions we had a wonderful year.  We have created beautiful patchwork quilts on Saturday mornings in the Reading Rooms and at home.  As many of you know the group collectively made a lovely charity quilt which was raffled at our Quilt Show on 27th May.


We would like to thank everyone who came along to the quilt show to see the most recent quilts made by the ladies and to enjoy tea, coffee and a cream scone.  The charity quilt was “house themed” in lovely blue shades.   Each of the ladies in the group made a patch, these were stitched together to create the beautiful quilt.   The quilt was raffled at the show and was won by Susan, Diane Loutitt’s sister.  I am sure you will love it in your home Susan!

Our ladies worked hard on the day of the show and it proved a great success.  We managed to raise £430, most of which will be donated to a local charity.  This charity will be decided in September when we start our new session.

Our Saturday group is an opportunity for quilters to get together and create patchwork.  We enjoy sharing our common interest through show and tell, and having a wee blether.  We have no regular teacher and tend to support and help one another when necessary, we work on items of our own personal choice so there is always a variety of patchwork going on.

Once again people of Kippen, thank you for coming along and supporting us.
