Glyn in Denbigh with my fabrics on September 13th....
I'm off to Japan for two weeks tomorrow, so Glyn will be taking my fabrics to Denbigh for the event below -
Cwiltwyr Dyffryn Clwyd Quilters are staging atwo-day exhibition on September 13 and 14 at Denbigh Town Hall (10-5 each day). There will be everything from large traditional bed quilts to contemporary art work on display. Members of the group will also be demonstrating quilting techniques and will be happy to chat about the craft of making quilts for use and display.
The 80-strong group, which meets every month in Ruthin and runs workshops to help members
develop their skills, is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. The exhibition is also one of the events featured in the Helfa Gelf Open Studios programme giving art lovers across North Wales the chance to meet the makers and view their work.
As well as the main exhibition in the Town Hall, on the Saturday there will also be a trading day with fabric, thread and other textile suppliers selling their wares in the Market Hall on the ground
floor - Susan Briscoe, Stitch Allsorts (Tan Lan), Linda Parrish, African Fabric Shop, Batiks & Beads,Castle Court Quilter, Quilters' Needs (Dot Sherlock). There will be refreshments for sale, and admission to the exhibition is free (donations gratefully accepted).
The quilting group members have made a stunning traditional quilt, called 'Dear Jane', which will be raffled in aid of St Kentigern's Hospice. The quilt will be unveiled at the exhibition and raffle tickets will be for sale.
Further details of the venue can be found on the Helfa Gelf website http://www.helfagelf.co.uk/en/artists/cwiltwr-dyffryn-clwyd-quilters or by contacting 01352 757482. It has ramp/lift access and there is a public car park behind the Hall (venue postcode is LL16 3TB). There are also many other artist studios open in Denbigh and the area that weekend - details www.helfgelf.co.uk
Glyn will have a very similar selection to the fabrics we took to Festival of Quilts, so if you didn't manage to see us there, perhaps you'll be able to get to Denbigh.
