At varying times of the year, the group hold challenges which may have a summer or Christmas theme.  Coach trips are organised to places of interest - such as the quilt show at Malvern in May.  The group support various charities, for which we make and donate quilts for children and adults in need of support and comfort.

Workshops are arranged on a regular basis called 'Do your own thing!' days where you can book a table and work in peace and quiet away from those home distractions.  On occasion, guest tutors teach new tricks and techniques.

Every two years, an exhibition of members' work is held.  Contributions are eagerly anticipated from members - small and large quilts, wall hangings, bed quilts and bags.  A charity quilt is raffled at the exhibition - something that all members can take part in.

The group has a full and comprehensive library which is available to members.  There are also a number of gadgets available for members' use, including a light box, a quilt basting gun, and grids, templates, rotary sharpener, board smoother, irons, ironing boards and extension cables.
