Don’t miss out on all The Quilters’ Guild has to offer this year at the Festival of Quilts, we have exciting news about quilting superstars and a special offer for new members!
This year at the Festival of Quilts we have goody bags full of quilt-y treasures, generously provided to us by EQS UK, for new members of The Quilters’ Guild who sign up to membership at the festival (while stocks last). So if you are thinking of becoming a member, or if you are already a member and are thinking of gifting a membership to a friend or family member, this would be the perfect time to join! You can sign up for membership at the Quilters’ Guild stand A32 at the entrance to Hall 7.
This year the Guild Tombola will feature a myriad of pot holders of all shapes and sizes. Tickets are only £1, so come along to stand P15 and see what you could be lucky enough to win. Prizes are made by Guild members from all over the country and will add colour and interest to your kitchen, not to mention protecting your fingers! Perhaps it will inspire you to create your own tombola entry for 2019, when the theme will be ‘boxes’? All the funds raised go to supporting the work of the Guild.
You will find QShop at stand M11 this year and with our wonderful new 1718 Patchwork Silk Coverlet collection to debut, along with a host of other beautiful quilt inspired gifts, it’s too good to miss. You’ll find mugs, notebooks, diaries, calendars, glasses cases and lens cloths, books and much more, so why not give yourself a treat?
We are delighted to announce that in association with our generous sponsor, EQS, we will be hosting worldwide quilting celebrities Cindy Cloward, CEO of Riley Blake Fabrics and Jill Repp of June Tailor in an exciting new venture at stall C38. We know how much quilters love Riley Blake fabrics and patterns and June Tailor notions and we’re delighted that we can bring you experts to demo and answer questions about the fantastic products we will be selling. Pop along to purchase the latest pattern and fabric ranges from Riley Blake and check out June Tailors must have range of notions including the iconic Cut n Press boards that no quilter can do without. Cindy and Jill will be on hand to show you how to make the most of your purchases. Make sure you add C38 to your list of must visit locations at the festival this year to see the wonderful selection of haberdashery essentials available.
