We hope you are all enjoying a summer break despite the weather. Don’t forget that next week is the Festival of Quilts at the NEC. This is right on our doorstep and easy to get to by train, or car.
There is so much to see and do at the Festival that you really need at least two days there – one to see the quilts and one to visit all the traders. Most of us can only escape for one day so plan ahead and write a list (or two). Take your camera and some money, most of the traders take cards too – which is not always a good thing, too much temptation.
Why not persuade some friends to share a car (and travel costs) and have a day out. You will see traders from all over the world, not just the UK traders you will see at other shows up and down the country. The same applies to the quilts – entries from all over the world, so many different categories and styles to admire and enthuse over – and wonder how on earth …?
You will find further information to help you plan your day(s) out here, including the option to buy tickets in advance, choose and book a workshop or a talk . . . and check out the list of traders to help you plan what you really need to buy and what you would quite like to look at. Perhaps we’ll see you there!
