Exhibition 2015

There will no Exhibition in 2015. Due to the enormous amount of work and the high costs, we will be moving to an exhibition every two years. The next one will be held in 2016.

We may offer smaller displays in the off years, please check this page for details.

  1. Lovely show - I'm thrilled to see that Maureen used my pattern to make her Autumn Lights quilt! It turned out beautifully. I also love the show of Everlasting quilts -- huge amount of work!
