First Quilt Shows of the Year (2019) Newark & Ardingly

This week saw the first Quilt Show of 2019.

We set off to Newark on Wednesday and stayed at the same lovely self catering accommodation as we did last last. This means we can get an early start for set up on Thursday.

Setting up the stand normally takes us five to six hours of hard heavy graft.

Our range is now so large that we now have to make conscious decisions before a show as to what stock we are not going to take with us as we just cant fit it all in the van. So if you are wanting to look at or purchase a specific fabric at any show, please message us a couple of days before to make sure we pop it in the van!

Newark is a lovely venue, its nice and light with good access.  Unfortunately this year, the show did not appear to be as well supported as the previous year, which is such a shame. Never the less we met some lovely quilters, many of whom we already knew.

Here are just some of the quilt from the show.

Beautiful Art Quilt !  But then we Love Doggies !

On the Sunday, straight after the closing of the show, we packed up and headed back to our lovely accommodation for an extra night.

This year we have taken the decision to head south to do the Ardingly Show for the first time.  Ardingly is in West Sussex and therefore is a heck of a drive from Bridlington.  So we decided to stay and extra night at Newark rather than drive North for a couple of nights then all the way South again.
The Accommodation comes with some great neigh-bours!

Oh Deer !!
