Quadrille Quilters History

Quadrille Quilters

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
