What we like to do.

Wall Hanging made for Timbrebongie House.

Over the years we have done doll making, candlewicking, knitting, we do a lot of hand stitching, but at the end of the day quilting is our main passion.
We do like to help out our community. We have made quilts for the long term patients at he Narromine Hospital, a wall hanging for Timbrebongie House (home for aged persons), we make on a regular basis quilts which are given to the Narromine and Dubbo hospitals for parents of still born babies. As fundraisers we have made bags for The Royal Blind Society, quilts to be raffled by junior sporting groups, quilts that have been raffled to raise money for cancer victims, as well as quilts made and given to cancer sufferers just to say "that we care".

How We Came About

Club Quilt Narromine are a group of approximately 30 women who love quilting, embroidery, well might as well say craft in general. A large number of us originally learnt to quilt with Ruth Brien and her off sider Pat Shepherdson. Four years ago we had to find ourselves a new place to meet as our previous place was no longer available to us. The Narromine Bowling Club came to our rescue, and offered to us their meeting room. So we have now have a wonderful room at the Bowlie, we meet every Thursday night and every second Saturday. As for our name a work friend of mine (a male) sometimes asked "what did you do on the weekend" of course I told him about my passion....and he could not help himself to make the odd smart comment....so then when we spoke it was "how was your club quilt weekend".....so why not "Club Quilt".
