September quilt shows A heads up re the venues for the Great Northern Quilt Show and the Scottish Quilt Championships. The GNQS will be in the new hall at the showground at Harrogate.  The photo above was when we were in the temporary pavilion last year, which was actually very good.  I'm looking forward to seeing the new hall.  There's some photos in this slideshow on the showground's website.

The SQC will be in the Lowland Hall this year - the old MacRobert Pavilion (with the awful access issues) has been demolished! Here is a link to the Lowland Hall floorplan. It looks like it is all on the one level - brilliant. So if access issues were putting you off coming to the Scottish Quilt Championships or the Spring Quilt Festival in Edinburgh, it will now be in a better venue, but on the same site.  You can still enter your quilt for the SQC - the closing date for entry forms is August 1st.

Last year in the old pavilion, my stand backed onto the stairs at the February show... often a chilly spot...


And specially for Glyn's 'fan club', a photo of him on his first ever visit to a quilt show, at the Spring Quilt Festival in February 2010.  This is the only photo I could find that shows a little bit of the rest of the MacRobert Pavilion space.  Little did Glyn know what he might be getting into!
