All money raised will go towards CHS a charity that supports young homeless people in Ely and Branching Out which supports adults with learning difficulties.

There will be free parking at the Nutholt Lane venue.

Entrance costs £3 and includes refreshments.

The group has held three successful quilt shows in recent years and currently has 20 members who meet twice a month.

The group describes itself as "ladies who have a passion for fabric" and says its mission is to "sew and socialise".
