Festival of Quilts - Coming Soon!

Share it Please
Well it may be next week and we'd like to say we're nearly finished preparing but...for some reason there seems to be even more to do this year than ever! But there again, we do have a lot going on. so here is a quick roundup and a link to our site that tells you much much more...






We'll have a huge selection of Coats (Rowan) fabrics including Kaffe Fassett, Amy Butler, Kaffe Fassett Collective and Free Spirit fabrics. The popular Tilda Fabrics and accessories from Tilda including Tilda Dolls will be on display. A colourful array of thread from Coats as well as our own Cotty thread, Presencia and Aurifil will be on the same stand so you can colour match to your fabric as you go. Samples of Amy Butler's gorgeous bags may inspire you - we hope so as we have lots of her patterns and a selection of the interfacings and fusibles to make them.


Book Signings!

Amy Butler (with her latest book - Amy Butler's Style Stitches), Kaffe Fassett (Kaffe Fassett's Quilts en Provence), Marti Michell (Perfect Patchwork Templates), Jane Brocket (The Gentle Art of Quiltmaking), Lisa Lam ( The Bag Making Bible) will all be signing copies of their books on The Cotton Patch stands - B21/B25/A24 and C19.



Last, but by no means least, we will have an entire stand dedicated to the long arm quilting machine - the HandiQuilter Avante 18. To try out this fabulous quilting machine please visit stand C21.
