William Loveless Hall, High
for Exhibition report and pictures
It is a self-help group, although there are a number of workshops
throughout the year, some taught by professional patchwork and quilting
teachers, and some in-house.
The group had its first exhibition in October 1999 when they raised over
a thousand pounds, which was split between the Mayor of Wivenhoe's Charity
Fund and Breakthrough Breast Cancer. The group made two quilts and
numerous other prizes especially for the raffle at the exhibition. During 2003, all the group's energies
were concentrated on its
second exhibition held in October that year.
And in October 2007, the group held its third exhibition - click here
