Who we are

Want to find out a little bit more about LeedsMQG? Well you’re in the right place.

Founded by Lisa (of @Lisasew and @simplysolids) back in January 2014. Supported and encouraged by a group of friendly online quilters who were all looking for somewhere to meet, to chat and to sew.

That is the basis of our group, a monthly meeting where we try to keep formalities to a minimum. Somewhere we can get together, share ideas, spend the day sewing and chatting. We do have some themed months and have started an annual sewing day making quilts for the charity Siblings Together.

We like to share our skills and have introduced sessions to do just this, as well as bringing in professionals to teach.

We have a wide range of skills from complete beginner quilters to  experienced. We are working on a programme to ensure that all our knowledge can be brought together to help one another.

From day one the interest has been fantastic with over 30 people signing up to the  initial newsletter and a regular 20 people attending meetings. We are growing fast too and new members are always welcome.
