Situated on the beautiful Kapiti Coast of New Zealand we are a diverse group of quilters and fibre artists with the love of quilting as the thread which brings us together. Meetings are held twice a month at Waikanae Bridge Rooms, 27 Elizabeth Street, Waikanae. This means we have both a day and an evening meeting to suit the needs of all members. Interesting speakers, Show and Tell and helpful hints mean we are always inspired at our meetings over the year. Day meetings are held on the third Tuesday of the month at 10a.m. Evening meetings are held on the first Thursday of the month at 7.15pm. Next meeting dates are advertised in the relevant section of the website - see sidebar navigation.

Membership of the guild from 2022 will cost $40 per annum with a $5 discount if paid by May 31st each year and can be paid in cash to the treasurer (Maree Luckman) at meetings, but preferably through internet banking -

Community Quilts Group - Our Community Quilts project makes quilts which are available when a crisis or time of hardship happens in the community. These quilting days are held every two months on a Saturday from 10am - about 2.30pm but you can attend for all or part of this time.
