Upper Street Events Supports our Young Quilter Fundraiser at the Knitting and Stitching Shows. In our 40th birthday year The Quilters’ Guild is reprising one of our most successful fundraising ventures to support Young Quilters. We aim to ensure the future of our craft by supporting the next generation through the sale of textile art. This event is being generously supported by nationally renowned as well as unsung stars from all over the country.
Upper Street Events have generously supported The Quilter’s Guild by providing gallery space at both the London and Harrogate Knitting and Stitching Shows for our Mystery Maker Sale. At each of the shows there will be a continually changing gallery of anonymous textile work to be enjoyed. And when you fall in love with one, it can be yours to keep for £75. That’s when you solve the mystery, as the maker will be revealed on purchase!
