Every year the Guild holds a fundraising tombola at the Festival of Quilts which is held at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC), Birmingham, UK. The dates are 11th - 14th August, 2016. In 2016 the theme is zipped purses.
Region 9 will host the Quilters' Guild Tombola in 2016 at Festival of Quilts. They need a really good selection of really good purses-with-zips. Our steps and button purse pattern from Popular Patchwork November 2015 would be ideal, but there are lots of different patterns to choose from, or you could make up your own.
Anyone who has a love and interest in quilts and quilting is invited to make one - or two - or twenty of these little purses. You don't have to be a member of the Quilters' Guild to join in. Please post images of your creations and get inspiration from the Zippy Purses Blog . You can then post your finished purses to:
