Victorian Quilters Inc. is an organisation bringing together quilters throughout Victoria, promoting the art of patchwork and quilting, while supporting and encouraging the establishment and activities of quilting groups. Victorian Quilters Inc. aims to foster interest in the history of patchwork and quilting, as well as to encourage high standards of design and workmanship in both traditional and contemporary areas. We sponsor and support patchwork and quilting activities, specifically lectures, workshops and exhibitions.
Quilts for the Very Snuggly Quilt project are made and donated to children and teenagers at the Royal Children’s Hospital. It is hoped that these quilts will provide some extra warmth and comfort at a difficult time. A record of each quilt is kept by Victorian Quilts Inc. to allow the recipient to acknowledge the quilt-maker if they wish. The quilts are given to long-term patients in the Oncology, Neurology, Cardiac and Cystic Fibrosis wards. For more information on quilt specifications please visit their website.
