There is going to be an exciting new event happening at The Festival of Quilts from August 6 - 9, 2015 at the NEC, Birmingham, UK. It is the first Game of Quilts.
Game of Quilts
is about completing a quilt from the first cut to the last stitch on
the label during the 7 hours that the Festival of Quilts is open each
day. Bernina sewing machines, cutting and ironing equipment are
supplied on the stand. Each day, three teams of four members each, will try to meet this challenge. Teams can be made up of more than four members, working in relay, no more than four at any time.
This is not a competition and there is no elimination of teams. All are winners, in that they will have achieved something great in aid of a very special charity as the quilts will be donated to Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity at the end of the Festival. Visit the Game of Quilts website and Facebook page for more information.
