The Community Textile Group has been in existence since 1985 meeting week by week
on Wednesday mornings during term time to work together on various textile projects
directed by Jean Hammond. In doing so members learnt new skills and gained experience
by working alongside a professional textile artist. The aim of the group was always
to serve the wider community through the medium of Textile Arts.
Over these many years the group has raised thousands of pounds by making beautiful
patchwork quilts for charity fund raising.
After 30 years of working together the group has now ‘retired’ to make some quilts
of their own!
