  1. Thank you for putting up photos and info from the Festival of Quilts at the NEC Birmingham. I’m not able to fly over the pond just yet, so I appreciate your sharing.

  2. Well, I was at the show, but it was too busy to spend time looking around. Thanks for showing these – I didn’t see any of them. Somewhere there was a prize winner that had used our Sassa Lynne threads but I didn’t even manage to see that 😦

      I’d given myself two days to explore the show (as everyone had said one day wasn’t enough!) and on the afternoon of the second day was still encountering quilts and stands I hadn’t noticed before. There’s just so much to absorb!
