Westbury Park Quilters silver anniversary

Westbury Park Quilters is an affiliated group  which meets monthly on a Monday evening at Badminton school, north of Bristol.  In October 2017 they will be celebrating 25 years together.

Pat Bishop, Jackie Malloy, Mavis Hyam, Di Goodison (a previous president of QGBI), Alison Robinson, Jan Burke, Sally Evans, Sue Sabido, Monica Jenkins and Jenny Long were the first members in1992.  They made quilts to fund local charities, in particular the Amaundo Link.

The group, currently with 43 members, still organizes themed challenges, has regular speakers, hosts a quilt show every 3 years as well as hands on evening workshops.

Their logo (created by Clare Coyle) is called "A Trip Around the World" and represents the distances they may travel in mind, if not in body, in membership of a quilting group
