From 14 – 16 May 2021 join in with the Crafts Council’s nationwide festival of craft participation, Hey Craft!
The Festival of Quilts and The Quilters’ Guild are opening up their annual competition to first-time quilters with a brand new Complete Beginners category.
We are looking forward to celebrating the 2021 Festival of Quilts by showcasing our forthcoming exhibition ‘Quilts and their makers’, taking 10 historic quilts and 10 pieces from our contemporary works. Newsletter readers can take a sneak peek in advance, as over the coming months we explore the variety and skill of our makers both past and present, and celebrate their creativity in a selection of the quilts which will be on display.
Guest blogger Janome UK shares a reflection on their 100th Anniversary year and how far sewing machines have developed since those early days. A must read for those of you who love your sewing machine history!
