Welcome to Region 2.
My name is Janet Hall and I am the Coordinator covering Kent, Surrey and Sussex. We have over 800 Individual Members and 43 Affiliated Groups across the Region the latter meet, at least every month with Speakers and Workshops.
We, as a Region, host many workshops with top quilters from all over the country and sometimes from further afield - as a Member you are entitled to attend any of these and may receive a preferential price.
We also hold Regional Days at which there may be two speakers with contrasting styles or one speaker and a related workshop. These Days are open to everyone but advance booking may give you, once again, a price advantage.
Every year the Region organises The Quilt and Craft Festival at Lullingstone Castle in Kent – this prestigious show, lasting 3 days, is the star in our calendar at which every Member can show their first, in between or last piece of work (quilt, wall hanging, picture, waistcoat etc.) of every standard in beautiful surroundings.
We are always looking for members, and their partners, to participate in setting up and help during and after the Show.
As well as Workshops in your area or the next County there are Stash Sales (an opportunity to sell fabrics and notions surplus to your needs) and talks – keep an eye on our calendar of events.
We are encouraging young people to sew with our many Young Quilter Groups. We are awaiting confirmation of the post of YQ co-ordinator.
All Region 2 Representatives and the rest of the Committee are listed at the front of our quarterly magazine, ‘Twos Company’. We are all volunteers who enjoy having fun running all the events you can participate in – want to join us? Give me a ring or send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking forward to meeting you
