Back home, exhausted but happy after five full days at Festival helping Isa at Creative Quilting on H17 ; always great to catch up with everyone and everything  and see so many wonderful quilts – and not all of them entered into the competition – there is always so much inspiration on the stands too.

Sadly I failed to take a camera that had any power (!) but that didn’t stop me shopping both for myself (threads and fabric)  and for !!-


4_shopping - Valerie Nesbitt - valerie


so keep an eye on the shop for LOTS of new products from lots of our contributors, which include Angela Daymond; Janet Clare; Lina Patchwork; Lorna Bateman; the return of Mandy Shaw and a lovely new pattern from Kjersti Smith featuring Dinosaurs.

Dates for next year are: 11-14th August (so slightly later than this year)
