Welcome to SA Quilters
SA Quilters Patrons
Her Excellency the Honourable Frances Adamson AC, Governor of South Australia and Mr Rod Bunten.
Quilters’ Guild of South Australia Inc (SA Quilters) was established in 1984 and has grown to encompass around 500 individual members and 90 affiliated city and country quilting groups.
Membership is open to anyone with an interest in quilt making.
Click here to see the SA Quilters Policies.
Each year SA Quilters choose a South Australian women’s and children’s charity to support. In 2023 we have chosen to support Treasure Boxes.
Contributions should be delivered at the SA Quilters December meeting.
When poverty, homelessness and domestic violence create an uncertain, sometimes dangerous home environment, many South Australian families struggle to provide their kids with the essentials of life; bedding, clothes, toys, even regular meals.
From this troubling reality, Treasure Boxes came to be – a team of caring, like-minded people, dedicated to preventing hardship and trauma by providing kids in need with critical items many of us take for granted.
Treasure Boxes web site is https://treasureboxes.org.au/
Our generous SA Quilters members always rise to the task of helping others. This year goods will be thankfully received at the SA Quilters December meeting.
Treasure Boxes would also be very grateful if members made carry bags which would hold the goods given to people in need.

Listed below are some of the goods currently needed to support women and children in need. You can find a full list on the Treasure Boxes donate page at https://treasureboxes.org.au/donate-goods/
Are held at Burnside Community Centre on the first Thursday of each month from February to December at 7.15pm for 8pm start. Parking onsite with no time restrictions.
Cost: $3 for members, $10 for visitors, affiliate and non-members.

The final daytime meeting was held in May. The meetings have been suspended due to low attendance.
Members and visitors will have time to meet friends, indulge in retail therapy at the attending quilt shop, visit the library or to drop off Quilts of Love, our community quilt program. There is a guest speaker at each meeting, raffle prizes to win, SA Quilters sub-committee reports and an inspiring Show and Tell.
