Exhibition of Quilts at Village Fabrics on Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd September
This is when we take our quilts down and hang our customers and pupils patchwork quilts upstairs and downstairs and throughout the shop. There will be all shapes and sizes of quilts on display, lots of different techniques from machine appliqué to hand quilting and some designs in different colour ways as they have been made by one class. There are no prizes no quilt police just a celebration of the gentle art of quilting and the friendships formed through the shared enjoyment of patchwork and quilting.
This time there will be a Pop Up Tea Shop in our Christmas room where you can have a drink with cake or scone or treat yourself to an Afternoon Tea. So why not enjoy the colour and inspiration and then sit down for a relaxing cuppa.
While the event is free we would hope that you will donate to one of our chosen charities on the day. Our chosen charities are the local Air Ambulance or Motor Neutron.
Thoughts of Japan - Block of the Month
A mixture of machine appliqué sashiko stitching and EPP techniques are used to create the different sections. It is inspired by the clouds of spring blossom in Japan. The beautiful fresh feel to this wall hanging is achieved by the use of rich metallic fabrics. This project will suit experienced and intermediate level quilters. This is an ideal project for all those who enjoy hand stitching.
