Quiltfest and Spring Quilt Festival
The Spring Quilt Festival at Edinburgh was fun, as usual, meeting lots of quilting friends and making a few new ones too. The workshop, 'Sashiko in Circles', was a sell out! I think I'll develop this one hour workshop into a full day class. It's a great way to try out some of the Yuza sashiko patterns in an innovative style. I forgot to take any photos of the stand, we were so busy.
Of course, the Japanese quilts by Reiko Domon and members of Yuza Sashiko Guild are on display at Llangollen Museum until March 5th, as the final Quiltfest exhibition for 2013. If you don't get a chance to see them there, we are planning to show some of them at World Textile Day in Llanidloes on March 16th, but I don't think we'll have enough room to show them all. Please note that World Textile Day in Stirling will be on Saturday June 22nd - a typo in the Guild newsletter gives 23rd as the date, but it it definitely on the Saturday.
