Just been adding content to the Festival of Quilts website for my Quilting in Action stand. I will be next to Yvonne Brown in the run of QIA stands near the cafe area. This is a row for professional quilters and textile artists - proper grown up stuff! This is a fantastic opportunity and I am now planning what to take for my stand.
I plan to show off 3 of the techniques which I offer as workshops and sell packs with everything included to make a framed piece. Fingers crossed the visitors to the FOQ will like them. This is an example of the Paper Mania piece made from painted newspaper, vilene and sheers - all stitched and burned back with a soldering iron.

What a lovely time I had at the British Quilt and Stitch Show in Uttoxoter last weekend. My first trip to Staffordshire and I was made very welcome by 3 enthusiastic groups of stitchers at my Texture Adventure Workshops. Everyone made a 6" square ready to be framed - not bad for 2 hours work. Don't they look good when all laid out together - I think a feel a big piece coming on!
