Abbey Quilters is a small, friendly Patchwork and Quilting group which meet at 7:00 pm in the Abbey Row Centre, Kelso on the second Tuesday of every month between September and June.

The membership for the year is £20 or £5 per meeting.

We also have an informal sewing bee on Monday afternoons from 2pm till 4pm, also in Abbey Row Centre.
