Exciting news for patchwork and quilters! Following the success of the first Quilt and Stitch Village, the 2014 British Quilt and Stitch Village will take place at Uttoxeter Racecourse, Staffs on 25th - 27th April 2014
There is still time for you to take part!!
If you’re feeling competitive, there’s still time to enter the show competition. There are brilliant prizes for each category, courtesy of our generous sponsors, including the ‘Overall Champion Prize’ of a Pfaff Sewing Machine worth nearly £1000. Return your entry form by 10th March 2014 for your chance! If you’ve never entered a quilt show before, then this is certainly the one to join in!
The ‘Special Theme’ category for both the quilt and embroidery sections this year is ‘Lest We Forget’. 2014 will commemorate 100 years since the start of the First World War and 70 years since D Day, so this is your opportunity to make something very special to mark these occasions.
