We had an International Quilting Day today. I picked up my friend and we made our way to the venue, neither of us knew quite what to expect. The hall was already full when we arrived.
There were trade stands for beading, quilting and hand dyes and embellishing and also demos from those respectives and others. Lots and lots of chatter, catching up, making things and admiring.
The food was great and endless tea and coffee. We made cards, pin cushions and needle cases, bought raffle tickets and tickets for bags which were placed in the bags we wanted to win. There was also quite a challenging quiz.
I came away contented, quite a few £££s lighter, with aforementioned pin cushion and needle case, a bag from the bag draw, a bundle of hand dyed fabric from the raffle and I came second in the quiz with some chocolate Easter eggs.
All monies raised went to Help for Heroes and the day as a whole was great!
