No matter your stage of learning all patchworkers and quilters are welcome at the Longbeach Parish Quilting Group.  Although most of the ladies who come each week make quilts all “crafty” people are welcome.  As well as the patchwork ladies we have several knitters and embroiderers and sometimes people just join us for a cuppa and some company.

As well as working on our own projects each year we donate quilts and other hand made items to various local charities including Matt’s Place and Winter Warmers. There is no set cost for participating in the group but rather a tin for donations.  At the end of each year this money is donated to local and international charities.

The Longbeach Parish patchwork and quilting group meets at 7:30pm in my home on Monday nights and 10:00am in the parish centre at St Chad’s on Friday mornings.  If you would like to join the patchwork group please phone the parish office on 9772 1251
