Quilts on the Farm
An exhibition of work by students of Mandy Shaw held at Carters Corner Farm, Cowbeech, Sussex.
This was the first exhibition put on by Mandy showcasing the work of her Hailsham students and we are treated to a wide variety of designs, patterns and colours.
Walking round the farm on the lovely sunny day was also a treat – there were bluebell woods plus goats, sheep ponies, unusual chickens and my new friends the Alpacas. Their wool is brilliant, apparently, for use in stuffing – particularly small items such as pincushions.
