Come and Join "Brit Quilt"

I keep seeing US quilters mentioning their local quilt groups and seeing the Down Under this and the Down Under that and I thought it would be fun for the UK quilters to have a place to meet, get to know each other, chat and show off what they're working on.  I heard Brit Pop mentioned on the radio earlier this week and I thought: we need Brit Quilt.  Maybe we'll have a Brit Bee.  Maybe a Brit mini quilt swap or Brit mug rug swap.  Maybe you might even come across someone who lives round the corner from you.

The group is for any quilters living in Britain, long or short term.  So click here and go and join, add the button to your blog and spread the word amongst any UK quilters you come across in your blogland, flickrland, facebook, twitter or real life travels.  Here's the button and it links through to the Flickr group.  Look forward to seeing you there.

  1. Hi, Lynne - have you heard of BQL - the British Quilting List? It's a yahoo group - http://groups.yahoo.com/group/BQL/ - it's a great place for (mostly) UK quilters to talk quilting and share photos. I'll have a look at your flickr group as well!

  2. Cool. I have put the button on my blog and shall join. It will be interesting to see who else does. Are Brits who live overseas allowed - and do I count because I am a Canadian in the UK?? Just trying to make it confusing now. I have a UK passport so I should pass the entrance exam.

  11. I'm feeling very left out here. I'm British, but I don't live in UK, so can't join in.
    So I'm going to lurk on the outskirts of the group and stalk you all!!!!

  12. Hurry up next year when we move home! I live in Singapore at the moment and there's diddly squat here for quilters (couple of nice quilt shops but they don't sell much fabric that's my taste - and it's mucho expensivo!)
