Mimram Quilters Exhibition

Mimram Quilters Exhibition

I have been busy in the past few weeks publicising this exhibition in March (22-23). We shall be open from 10-5 (10-4 on Sunday) and there are two lovely quilts for the raffle. We normally get over 100 items for the exhibition from our members so the show looks fabulous. We also have enormous sales tables with quilts, books, small items etc., and this is very popular. Also try our great cakes - Mimram is renowned for the choice. Husbands/non-quilters can come in for free and sit and have a coffee while their partners look and spend! 

We have three traders: Home Workshop Books (made famous by the father of the young couple who now run it - he is always in red braces); Secret Garden Quilting run by Lucy - she often has pop-up shops in our area (Herts); and Threads and Patches (who have their shop in Fenny Stratford south of Milton Keynes - loads of workshops run from there). We shall also be running a 3D raffle - bags/cushions etc. Choose the one you want and put your raffle ticket in it. 

Finally we have three competitions running for our members - a journal quilt (A4 size) entitled 'War' commemorating the outbreak of WWI; a wallhanging entitled 'Memories' - I have done one illustrating my parents' garden with its two plum trees which I can remember from being a toddler; and also a Traditional Quilt (this has to be a handquilted bed quilt).  The pictures below show some of the winners from 2011.

Do come and visit if you can. Details of where and when are on my sideline on the Home page of
