Quilting Shows and Exhibitions

The Country Living Spring Fair is almost with us, and with the promise of spring in the air, it offers a delightful variety of Home, Garden, Food and Crafting exhibitions.

Held at the Business Design Centre in London, from 19 – 23 March, this is a perfect day out to share with friends and family who aren’t keen crafters, as there is something for everyone at this Spring Fair – and you never know, you might just convert them!

Crafting workshops including the “Enhanced Workshops” from West Dean College will whet your creative appetite.  Find inspiration, develop skills and make beautiful creations to take home on the day.

Don’t forget to share your feedback with us on our Facebook page.

Country Living Fair

The Spring Knitting & Stitching Show is back at Olympia from 13th to 16th March. This year’s show includes late opening on Thursday, with a special ticket price for those who can’t be there all day.

The show includes some great workshops, hosts the finals of The National Fashion Textiles Competition for Schools, and has over 200 exhibitors.

Also at the show is the ‘Contemporary Quilt Exhibition’, which features quilts made by members of the Contemporary Quilt specialist group, a part of The Quilters’ Guild of the British Isles.

The quilts on display have all been selected to demonstrate the diversity of styles and techniques used by members of the group, which includes experienced artists and quilters exploring new techniques and materials to turn the traditional quilt into a form of contemporary art.

This show looks like a great day out, and one we’re sorry to be missing. We’d love to know what you thought of it. Share your feedback and pictures on our Facebook page

Spring is on its way (hopefully) and with it the start of the sewing and quilting shows. Quilt Direct won’t be going to all of them, wish we could, but we thought we’d share the details of some of them with you.Gigglesswatch
