Welcome to Aotearoa Quilters

Formed in 1994 as the National Association of New Zealand Quilters (NANZQ), we support quilters and textile artists by offering classes, exhibitions and professional development opportunities. Membership is open to anyone interested in the NZ quilting and textile scene.

Special General Meeting and Dinner

During the Education Seminar over the weekend of 25-27 May, there will be a Special General Meeting at 5 pm on Saturday 26th May. That will be to ratify some changes to the Constitution, mainly connected with electronic transactions.

After that meeting, there will be a dinner at the Capital Gateway Motor Inn,  Newlands, Wellington. The dinner consists of 3 courses, with a cost of $45. Guest Speaker – Jenny Bacon speaking about “My Journey into Quilts and Art”

We look forward to seeing you all there!
