at ExCel London 21-24th September http://thegreatbritishsewingbeelive.com
I will be on stand D22 and as I now have a bit more space I will be doing workshops on the stand.
Going to be a bit of a challenge, I’m used to fabric walls and pinning up with dressmaking pins whereas these walls you can only put velcro or double sided sellotape on both of which will ruin my artwork, so it’s either sew on loads of velcro spots or find hangers and take poles. As I usually do ExCel shows by train with a family helper (son or husband to help me up there) this is going to be a logistical challenge and we’re probably going to have to brave the London traffic and horrendous parking charges on put up and take down day! But I’m hoping it will be a productive and fun show, especially now I have an iZettle so I can take card payments at last. (My eldest says I’m finally coming into the 21st century – a new website is on the books soon and I think I have to go onto Facebook after years of avoiding it!
More details when I’ve a chance to sort them out….
I’ve just done
The Scottish Quilting Show At SECC, Glasgow 2nd- 5th March. Had a lovely time, Alex my husband came with me and we had a slow journey up there via friends and family. Only thing that spoiled it was car problems coming to a head. But we now have a lovely ex demo Honda Jazz which should get me to the next show –
Next week I am demonstrating at
Sewing For Pleasure at the NEC 16th-19th March. It also includes Fashion & Embroidery / Hobby Crafts / Cake International shows
The Stitching, Sewing & Hobbycrafts Show at ExCel London 20th – 22nd April
See the ICHF website https://www.ichfevents.co.uk for details.
Also teaching and displaying work at
The Festival of Quilts back at the NEC 10th – 13th August. I will be doing 5 or 6 classes and demonstrating in the Quilt In Action Area again
See the Upper Street Events FOQ website at http://www.thefestivalofquilts.co.uk
British Origami Society 50th Anniversary Conference, in Stratford Upon Avon 1st – 3rd September. Sadly this clashes with West Country Quilt Show not it’s dates have changed so I cannot do it this year after 3 years of a wonderful space and small friendly show. I will probably be doing a couple of fabric origami workshops (Orinuno), a talk and having a small display of folded pieces
Others to be confirmed. I’ll put some photos up when I get chance
