About Log Cabin Quilters

Log Cabin Quilters was set up in 2005 by Carol Lord and Heather Smith. Meetings were initially planned to be on the 1st & 3rd Thursday of each month from 7:15pm until 9:45pm; and the 2nd & 4th Fridays of each month from 2:15pm until 4:45pm. The first meeting was on 15th September 2005 in the Church Hall in Langford.

In a very short time there were 22 members attending the group meetings and in April 2006 the group applied to join The Quilters Guild. Since then the group has gone from strength to strength and there are currently 34 members who play an active part in the activities.

The first exhibition was held in June 2006 in St Andrews church in Langford. Despite all the nerves at this first exhibition, it proved to be a great success and subsequently there have been more exhibitions the church, mostly two years apart.

At the beginning, the majority of the group were all new to patchwork, although most had had previous sewing experience. In view of this, tutorial sessions were introduced with several local quilters. We are now a mostly self help group and are able now to share knowledge and ideas amongst each other. Occasionally we are fortunate to have visits from many well-known speakers and quilters who are willing to pass on their ideas and expertise.

Weekly meetings are still held on Thursdays and Fridays although now they alternate week by week. As well as the weekly meetings, there are also monthly Tuesday and Saturday groups.

Many of the members also attend external courses or ‘Retreats’ which have been very popluar. This year we are delighted to be heading off to the High Leigh Christian Conference Centre near Hoddesdon

Members also receive a regular Newsletter to keep them aware of everything that is happening within the group.

We are a very lively, friendly group of ladies whose ages range from young mums to those of a more mature age. We are open to all and welcome new members – please come along and see for yourselves.
