Library

Waverley Patchworkers owns an extensive collection of quilting related books and subscribes to Australian and overseas magazines. These are available for members to borrow for one month either at the Monthly Meeting or from the sub-branch at Quilters on High. New books are added each month.

The library catalogue has been sorted three different ways to help your find the book you want. They are available as pdfs. These are correct as of May 2016

Books by Author When you know who wrote the book.

Books by Title When you know what the book is called.

Books by Subject  Subject headings: Applique, Art quilts, Children’s quilts, Christmas, Clothing, Contemporary, Embroidery, Fiction, Foundation piecing, Japanese, Memory quilts, Miniatures, Piecing, Piecing -borders, Piecing -general, Piecing – general, Piecing techniques, Quilt collections, Quilting, Quilting miscellany, Scrap quilts, Textiles/colour/dyeing, Traditional

The Library also subscribes to 11 magazines and receives over 60 issues a year. Here is the current list of  Magazine Issues available for members to borrow.

Often the best way to learn is by watching, to help members the Library also has an extensive collection of DVD Titles.

Gift Quilts

Hundreds of quilts are made each year and then given to organisations who need this special support. These include residential accommodation for young people and the Childrens’ Ward of Monash Hospital. We also donate quilts for not-for-profit organisations to use in their fundraising.

Quilts are made using donated materials and time, and we are generously supported in this work by a number of businesses.

A gift quilt sewing day is held when there is a 5th Wednesday in the month, and in between members share in the various stages of production.

    Hi

    I am a Waverley member and would like to know how to Log In to the website. I haven’t registered a user name or password and there doesn’t appear to be any information on how to do so. Are you able to help?

    Thank you

    Yvonne

      There is no member area on this website. Waverley Patchworkers members are sent a monthly newsletter to their email account.

  2. I am interested in joining a chapter. My main interest is needle turn appliqué but feel I would like to share in other people’s ideas and quilting expertise.

    Thanking you in anticipation,
    Sincerely Rosemary Maher

    I have enjoyed my membership at Waverley for quite a few years.
    The recent decision of eliminating the posting the hard copy of the monthly newsletter is both arbitrary and discrimiatory.
    This move disavantage members that are technolically inable to download the document.
    My suggestion is to add a charge to yearly membership fee for those who prefer to receive their newsletter by mail.
    I am sure that members are entitled to get their newsletter in advance of the monthly general meeting. The members should be able to gain important information without going to extra inconvenience of going to sub group meetings to collect it.
    I urge you to rethink this move as l believe it will prove to be most ill advised.

      Hi Liz
      We thought long and hard about all options including your suggestion, before making the decision to provide the Newsletter by email only, with some pick up points for members who do not have the internet.
      With the website now up and running you will find more information appearing here, including details of the speaker who will be at the upcoming Monthly Meeting, once the change is implemented.
