Welcome to Bristol Quilters’ website. We are one of the largest quilt groups in the South West (Gloucestershire, Bristol, Somerset) area with 130 members. We range from beginners to international teachers and exhibitors and we were founded in 1980.
Bristol Quilters started as a very small group in 1980, meeting in a downstairs room in the Friends’ Meeting House in Hampton Road, Bristol.
The longest continuously serving members are Jan Hassard and June Hall who joined in 1984, although there are many current members who have been in the group for a considerable length of time, and others who have left for various reasons and returned to re-join. In 1990 Jan became the first Chairman of an elected committee. The group is now 130 strong and continues to introduce local talent to new ideas and speakers at our monthly meetings.
