Quadrille Quilters is the largest quilting group on the West Rand.
The group was started 25 years ago, in 1984, with only 4 members: Kathy Muller, Liz Dobbins, Carolin Copeland and Grace Nobili.
They named themselves after the Card Trick Block which has 4 cards – therefore Quadrille.
Initially the members met at each others’ homes. Since the group membership has increased, larger premises were required.
Our membership has increased to +/- 140 members.
The Florida Library Auditorium has become our permanent venue.
The group meets once a month, usually on the first Wednesday of the month.
We publish a monthly newsletter, full of relevant information for the group.
We have a Constitution which has been in force for over 20 years and Quadrille Quilters is run by a full committee.
Quadrille Quilters is registered as a Non Profit Organization with SARS.
The group has also been very involved in various charity drives having made quilts for 45 beds at San Salvador.
Baby quilts were made for a crèche in Randfontein.
We have raffled quilts to raise funds to go to Cancer research.
Presently we are heavily involved with the Nobili Foundation feeding scheme. www.aidsandchildren.blogspot.comv
