Only nine weeks to Festival of Quilts

A gift bag you'd love to keep

Only nine weeks until the Festival of Quilts which means Region 10 are looking to collect at least 175 Christmas decorations each week from now.

So far we have 2000 so let’s see if we can hit our target of 3500 items before the show starts.

We have been sent beautiful things – most of which I would love to keep being a Christmas fanatic.

Thank you all those of you who have already done your bit and please get sewing everyone.

Thank you especially Regine Bestle a member of the German Guild who is visiting UK and got happily roped in to make decorations for us. 

Why not get your quilting group to have a sewing day like these guild members have done.

Here are some more items recently arrived, to give you ideas. Mug rugs seem very simple to make but are a lovely thing to win.

Volunteers are needed to help on the stand at the FoQ. If you can spare at least an hour we would be very pleased to hear from you. Please email with day and time you can help.
