A reader asks
I will be staying in Ruawai, near Dargaville from Dec, Jan and Feb 2016 and would like to join/be associated with a quilt group within a 45 min drive. Have you any suggestions?
What a wonderful idea to make new friends when visiting a new place or staying with family. I searched our directory for Quilting Groups In Northland: we have one quilting group listing in Northland: Marsden Material Girls – Whangarei. That’s a long way from Dargaville!
Readers do you know of any other groups in Northland?
It doesn’t matter if you are small group. Please leave a comment on this post to let us know or contact us at Quilting Focus with your group. I know quilting is alive and well in the north! Or if you are a keen quilter in the area where our reader will be staying, and you are willing, I can pass your details on to our reader: contact us.
Another option is to visit the local quilting shop in the area.
What do you do to connect with quilters when travelling?
And on the topic of travelling quilters, here are a couple of videos where quilters share how they bring along their projects.
