Around ten members of varying previous experience and lots of enthusiasm. We bring along our own projects to share with each other, gain new ideas for colour etc and just enjoy seeing others work growing.
 
Working on a group quilt was inevitably the next thing we all wanted to do and during 2007 we presented four quilts to the local hospice in Paphos. We used a japanese square as a base, each made fifteen over the duration and sewed them all together.
 
This was followed in 2010 by a Sample Quilt which we made for Help for Heroes and which was delivered in person to Headley Court, the rehabilitation Centre for injured servicemen.
In 2014 we also made 2 quilts for the newly opening Archangel Gabriel Hospice in Paphos.
Classes with some basic instruction are available for people who have never made patchwork or quilted - and twice a year we hold one-day workshops to learn and work on new ideas.
 
New members are always welcome.
