We are Thistle Quilters, Edinburgh's longest established quilting group. Passionate about quilting and textiles, we welcome experienced and beginner quilters alike.

We meet once a month and have an extensive and exciting lecture and workshop programme.

40 Years of Thistle Quilters 

Book available to order now.

We bring you written articles and quilts galore from members stretching back to the founding of the group forty years ago. As well as ‘traditional’ you will witness such developments as ‘modern’ and ‘artistic’. You will read their stories.

This book was born from the simple object of scanning archives into the modern format of digital storage. We pieced together this timeline which highlights past and present members numerous stories and accomplishments throughout the last 40 years. This very special book is our testament to them.
