Quilt Direct, Bernina and Cowslip Workshops are hosting a “Quilt For A Queen” drop-in workshop from 11am to 3pm on 15 March with kind permission from Steve & Jo Colwill
To mark Her Majesty the Queen’s 90th birthday in 2016, we’re inviting you to contribute to a special “Quilt For A Queen”. This project will create a unique gift to mark this special occasion while raising funds for Friends of the Elderly, one of the charities of which the Queen is patron.
Come and join us for this friendly workshop where you can create your own square to add to the Queen’s Quilt. There is a donation of £15 per square, and ALL of it goes to Friends of the Elderly.
Katherine of QD, Jane Thorne from Bernina UK and Jo of CW will be on hand to inspire you, encourage you and enjoy a fun day with you participating in this once in a lifetime celebration. All squares will be included in a virtual panel and 60 squares will be selected by an invited panel of judges, including world-renowned quilter Philippa Naylor, to create a quilt that will be on display at various locations (including Festival of Quilts )during 2016 before being given to Queen Elizabeth II to mark the occasion of her 90th.
Quilt Direct is really pleased to be a part of this historic event – not only is our queen the longest reigning monarch in our history, she is also the oldest living monarch in the world.
Cowslip is on Newhouse Farm, St.Stephens, Launceston Cornwall PL15 8JX – a farm in the beautiful Cornish countryside, about 5 miles from the Devon border. Cowslip Workshops Map & Directions
