Traditional Group

Having just taken over the position of Editor for In the Frame the newsletter for the Traditional Group of the Quilters Guild, I am hoping that members will let me know of any local exhibitions that they have visited where they were impressed by a really lovely traditional quilt. With a picture too!
If you haven't joined the Guild, do think about it as they need support for our wonderful craft.

Duxford March 2016

Haven't been to Duxford show for a year. It was a pleasant surprise to go on Mothering Sunday and find it not too crowded. Probably not too good for the stall holders but great for the visitors! Not so many quilts this time and fewer stalls of the classic variety. Many of the bigger names no longer go, such as Creative Grids, and there is a distinct lack of stalls selling only items like stencils, rulers etc. There was a very nice display of journal quilts. Most on a seaside theme.
