Overstrand Parish Council

Railway Quilters

The group started when two ladies Mary Walker and Mary Lewin made a simple squared patchwork quilt to be raffled to raise money for their parish church. Finding a shared love of needlework they decided to meet regularly and Mary Walker opened her home in the old railway station at Gunton Hall to other interested women.   Hence the name of the Group.

We now meet at Overstrand Parish Hall, in The Londs between 10 am and 12 noon  on the second and fourth Tuesday of each Month.

We are an informal Group with a wide variety of craft interests, which include patchwork, quilting, knitting, embroidery, card making, tapestry and lace making.   Beginners are most welcome, as well as more experienced people,  so please come along and join us.
