About Our Group

The North of the Yarra Quilters Guild is a group of people that have come together to share their enjoyment of patchwork, applique and quilting

We meet in the Senior Citizens Building in Gipson Street, Diamond Creek, a northern suburb of Melbourne. Our postal address is: PO Box 754, Eltham 3095, Victoria, Australia

Our group has casual sewing days every Thursday and a monthly Guild meeting, which often includes: mini workshops; presentations by speakers; stalls by the local patchwork shops.

We also run an annual retreat to Lake Burnbrae, Myrniong, and Biennial Symposiums and Exhibitions for our members.

The Guild was formed in 1992, our aims are

  • To enable people with like interests to share their knowledge and enjoy meeting together
  • To promote their skills and expand their knowledge
  • To promote patchwork and quilting within the community
