Festival of Quilts 2014


Our stand

It is only now that I have begun to recover from the Festival Of Quilts. It was an extremely enjoyable 4 days.

Round the corner were Sue Chapman and Lynne Onions. Am not sure where the pic of Sues half has gone but here is Lynnes. Sue and Lynne are starting up a new workshop enterprise which should be up and running sometime early next year. Link here

I enjoyed Debbie Lyddons contribution to Fine Art Quilt Masters
And this one by Claire Higgott

Of all the exhibitions I think I enjoyed Ann Johnstones most.



Aside from the visual delights, the one thing that I have come away with is the fact that there is a lot of misinformation floating about about natural dying and printing, including practices that might be positively harmful to health. I am thinking therefor that reluctant workshop giver that I am, I might well join the fray. At least then people could learn safely.
