Twenty Five Years of Highland Quilters
Our first 25 years was commemorated at our exhibition in Inverness Cathederal in June 2017
Highland Quilters is a quilting group based in Inverness. The group was formed in September 1991, but its beginnings can be traced as far back as April 1980.
It all started with a meeting at Sheena Norquay’s home in April,1980,
which grew into Haugh Quilters, who continued to meet as a “house group” till the growing numbers forced a move to the Dunbar Centre in Church Street, Inverness in 1989. September, 1991 saw the first AGM of the new Highland Quilters, all Initially Quilters’ Guild members.
1981: The first Quilt Exhibition in Inverness run by the Quilters’ Guild.
October 1988: A Scottish Quilters’ Area Day with speakers’ Mary Fogg and
1989: First workshops with Chris Berry and Anita Dunlop.
First bus trip organised by the group was to a Quilters’ Guild Regional
Day at Musselburgh, with Michael James as Speaker.
Highland Quilters continues to run workshops for members as well as monthly evening meetings (except July & August) at Smithton Free Church Hall, Murray Road, Smithton. IV2 7YU
