Festival of Quilts – Virtual Competition 2020

The Virtual Competition 2020 is a new initiative launched by the organisers of The Festival of Quilts. 
‘Given that our normal quilt competition can’t go ahead this year, we didn’t want you to miss out so we’re offering you the chance to enter the competitions in an online format.’

‘Just like our standard FoQ competitions, there are 12 categories to choose from.’

The online entry form is due to be release this week.

More information is available on the FoQ website




17th March 2020 – COVID-19
Due to the latest advice concerning social contact that affects the majority of our members, all Meetings and Workshops have been cancelled until further notice. If and when the situation changes, members will be contacted and this website updated.


Thank you Harry!

Leominster Quilters are very lucky to be able to use Monkland Village Hall for our meetings. Harry, the caretaker, is always very helpful and looks after us very well.

So it was about time we showed our appreciation in a typically quilty way. Thank you Harry – hope you’re enjoying your quilt!


NEC – Festival of Quilts

I hope everyone who visited on the first day had as an enjoyable time as I did. I always come away wishing I was going back tomorrow, maybe next year! So much to see, not enough time or energy to keep going all day!

There were lots of happy but weary faces on the coach coming home.

Congratulations to Liz Jones (Hothouse Hybrids) for her Second Place in the Contemporary Quilt section. It was lovely to see Alyson’s quilt in the Two Person section too.
