There are still a few places left on these exciting workshops.
If you are willing to steward at either the Pavilion or the Museum please contact us
There are two exciting Workshops set up for Saturday 7th. Susan Briscoe will repeat for us the one she has twice recently taught in York at the Quilt Museum where she introduces students to the techniques used to create the iconic 1718 Coverlet, the gem of The Guild's collection but also teaches modern methods to create your own reproduction using techniques and materials not available in the 18th century, if that is your aim.
The other Workshop that day is with Linda Paris who is very well-known in Regions 12, 13 and 11. Linda's Workshops uses Thermofax screens, the latest way to screenprint on to a variety of fabrics using either paints or inks. Materials used on the day are included in the cost of the day but Linda will have more for sale.

Following my rant yesterday I have created a rota list so that you can see which days are available for you to come and do your session. We need at least 4 people for each day so please let me or Val know when you are available.
This list will be updated daily.

Val and I have been working our socks off preparing Quiltfest for February 2015 in Llangollen.
Now we need help with stewarding. The quilts on show in the Gallery at the International Pavilion are valuable pieces of textile art and must be respected. Unbelievably, quilts have been stolen from several exhibitions around the country recently and we must ensure that we do as much as we can to protect these items from theft and damage.
We need you to commit to come long for a day with a car full of friends/fellow quilters to talk to visitors and to answer their questions or queries. Don't worry if you don't know much about the quilts - we will have booklets and leaflets to help you and Val is probably going to be present on all days until 2pm.
So please think about joining us - you will have an interesting and colourful day! I will update this list daily so please let me or Val know when you are available and I will add you to the list.
