At the second regional meeting, 25 members and non-members met in Threlkeld Village hall to enjoy a day of all things patchwork and quilting.


Thoughts were provoked and discussion generated as we considered the 54 quilts in the contemporary quilt ‘suitcase’ collection from York and we were very much inspired by the ‘show and tell’ examples that some members had brought.

There was endless tea and coffee (not near the quilts) and cakes with donations towards Macmillan’s big coffee morning. We had a successful bring and buy fundraising stall and Just Sew from Penrith was in attendance with supplies to tempt us. Our thanks go to Just Sew for the continued support of The Guild in Cumbria.


In the afternoon, our lively, keynote speaker Helen Howes illustrated her life with ‘what a lot of quilts’ and literally pulled a great many quilts out of her impressive Pandora’s box! She explained how each one had come


about at that time in her life and had contributed to her becoming the successful artist and quilter that she is today. Inspiring and amusing, Helen brought a great afternoon to a close. She had some of her work for sale and donated a lovely covered notebook to the raffle.


The regional meetings are weekend events and Helen stayed over to give a workshop at Just Sew on the Sunday. She showed and helped those who were able to attend to make her ‘Spiral Quilt’ pattern and it was thoroughly enjoyed by a capacity group.


We now look forward to our Christmas jolly and the next regional weekend at the beginning of April 2019. There are many group events planned over the next six months, so if you are interested in anything to do with quilting, please get in touch.

We offer a wide range of equipment, aids and products designed to help you live safely and comfortably at home and get out into the community.

Our staff are also able to help with other issues affecting your ability to live independently. They can link you to other services, including practical Help at Home (for cleaning, shopping, laundry); Help with benefit claims, Disabled Facilities Grants for home adaptations, blue badges and other entitlements; Handyperson and Nail-cutting services; Activity groups; Day Support and Activities for people with physical frailty and memory loss; help to socialise and join activities and more.
