Region 13 occupies a large geographical area from Anglesey and the Lleyn peninsular of Wales in the West to the Cheshire Peak District and Pennine Lancashire in the East and the shores of Morecambe Bay in the North. It includes the Isle of Man and the large cities of Manchester and Liverpool.
Many of you may have had some contact with this region - perhaps a holiday by the seaside when you were a child, visiting Liverpool, Manchester or Chester for a weekend or even living here at some time during your life. Please consider this challenge and enter an A4 hanging.
Quiltfest has been instrumental in presenting quilters and fabric artists working at the cutting edge of quilt making during the past 14 years and has become a highly anticipated event each year in Llangollen. So please help to make 2015 another exciting exhibition - we welcome your support.
A selection of work from the Dislocation collection will be on display at the Museum & Art Gallery, also in Llangollen.
