Welcome to the Islay Quilters website!
Who Are We?
The Islay Quilters are a charitable organisation run by volunteers. The group makes a quilt to raffle every year and donates the money to local charities in Islay and Jura. This year the local causes we are supporting are the Islay and Jura Nurseries.
We have also been involved in making quilts and other projects with local Primary schools and have made the magnificent wall hanging that hangs in the Columba Centre. We are also planning several pieces in conjunction with the island’s WW100 commemorations in 2018.
We have a workshop in Islay House Square where we also have a shop which sells haberdashery, materials, craft equipment and, of course, quilts and hand-made, items made by our team of quilters. All this is run by volunteer members and the profits are channelled back into the “Islay Quilters”.
Activities now include card making, knitting club and beginners’ patchwork. Our charity quilt keeps us busy – look out for the latest! Among our recent projects is a hanging for the “Finlaggan Visitor Centre” which is well worth a visit.
