Old Town Quilters are an established friendly group of quilters, stitchers, embroiderers and knitters of all levels who are based in Eastbourne, East Sussex, UK. We meet at Community Wise, a community centre in the heart of Eastbourne “Old Town”.
We offer a varied programme of speakers and workshops and visitors are welcome when we have speakers and to our workshops.
Meeting from 2pm to 4.30pm on the 2nd and 4th Thursday afternoon each month, we welcome new members. We are a mixture of beginners, improvers and experienced quilters, sewers and knitters with varied experience in patchwork and quilting and all needle arts. We meet to share tips, ideas and expertise. Some of our members are hand sewers and others would not be parted from their sewing machine!
Our 2nd Thursday meeting is generally a “Stitch and Natter”, a sociable, open sewing and knitting afternoon where we bring our own projects with ideas and help flowing freely.
Our 4th Thursday is sometimes a talk or a workshop, check our programme for details.
Although we do not run formal teaching classes, we are keen to encourage new quilters and sewers and would support anyone who is interested to learn.
