Scottish Quilt Championships next weekend

I am getting ready for the Scottish Quilt Championships this week, which start on Friday and run until Sunday.  There's so much to do, including putting a hanging sleeve on my hearts quilt below.  I'm not sure quite what the stand will look like, as we are going to be in a different hall this year, the Lowland Hall, and the access is much, much better than the old MacRobert Pavilion, as this year's hall is all on one level - no stairs!  Reiko Domon's wonderful 'A Hill in Edinburgh' is also entered.

I am doing the same workshop I taught at the Spring Quilt Festival, 'A Celtic Maze in Sashiko'.  I don't usually repeat my workshops at the same location, but I only taught this one once at the Spring Quilt Festival, because I could only attend on the Friday, so I have made an exception.  As usual, I would recommend getting there early and going straight to the workshop desk as all the workshops sell out very quickly.  Sunday is often the easiest day to get a workshop place, as there are fewer visitors first thing in the morning.  Glyn designed this workshop and I have found his original piece of sashiko, so I will be bringing that with my workshop samples.  His isn't perfect but still looks good, and he was a complete beginner when he stitched it - if he can make a good job of it, so can you.

I have THREE FREE TICKETS to give away.  If you would like one, please contact me, by e mail (the address is on my website) or Facebook (private messages do get seen, even if you are not a Facebook 'friend').  I won't post them out this time, but will leave them at the ticket desk in an envelope with your name on, if you win.  First come, first served is the rule.  Good luck!
