Mannin Quilters are a group on the Isle of Man who are interested in quilting. We hold exhibitions every 2 years. You can view the quilts which were exhibited at previous exhibitions on our Picture Gallery page.
We meet every Tuesday evening from 7:15pm in the Sunday School of Ballabeg Methodist Chapel and every Wednesday afternoon at Port Erin Catholic Church Hall from 1:30pm. New members will be very welcome.
If you would like to join us or renew your membership for 2018, the 2018 membership form is available to download from the Contact Us page.
More information is on the About Us page.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION TO MEMBERS
The next Tuesday meeting on 25th September, will be at Ballafesson.
The hall in Ballabeg Methodist Chapel needs urgent repairs because of a water leak and it is currently unsuitable for meetings. Meetings will be arranged at other venues and Nora will endeavour to let you all know the new venues.
The 2018 Quilt Exhibition was held over the first weekend of May and attrated more than 300 visitors. It was included in the All-Island Art Festival held at various locations over the same weekend.
To view some of the quilts which were on show at the 2018 exhibition and at previous exhibitions, visit the Gallery Page
Our Quilting exhibition
Now the exhibition's over we can breathe again once more
The array of quilts were brilliant from the ceiling to the floor
The visitors came flocking to see our awesome work
all our precious sewing and lots of new patchwork
Even through the mist people came along in droves
just to have a peak at our lovely treasure troves
Tombola tickets sold and people walked around in awe
then they chose their favourite quilt from all the ones they saw
Teas and cake were served by the willing kitchen hands
as the visitors sat and chatted about the quilting stands
By Monday Lee was knackered, she couldn't take it any more
and still the people came in through the open door
With the quilters getting twitchy it was time for us to close
so we could gather up all the cushions, quilts and throws
So congratulate yourselves and relax from all the strain
but don't forget in just 2 years we'll do it all again!
