National Day of Stitch at Royal Wootten Bassett


To celebrate “National Stitch Day” three members of our Guild spent a couple of hours in the library at Royal Wootten Bassett – Susan Pierce, Brenda Evans and Ann Kingdon.  There was some interest but unfortunately the ladies could not attend daytime meetings.

Many thanks to the Librarian, Carolyn, for letting us spend this time in the Library.

Thank you Ann for the report and photo.  Ros

Quilt Show, NEC – August 2015

On Thursday we had our annual outing and this year Susanne S kindly organised a coach to take us to the Quilt Show at the NEC in Birmingham. 

For the second year in succession one of our members, Christine S,  had a quilt displayed on the Contemporary Quilt stand and I am sure everybody would like to join me in congratulating her on this great achievement.

There were a number of different categories in the exhibition and here are the winners of the pictorial and contemporary sections. 
As well there were traditional quilts on display, “My first Quilts”, art quilts, miniature quilts, group quilts, quilts from abroad and those created by young quilters.  The winner of a City & Guilds award was Charlotte Haenlein and her quilt was based on Nepalese hats. Below you will find a selection from these categories which you can scroll through.
Unfortunately I have had to delete these amazing quilts because I did not have permission to reproduce them on our blog.  August 2019
