We wanted to THANK YOU

All those long hours required to set up our show were well worth it. We just spent four fabulous days chatting away, laughing, catching up, sharing stories, shopping and viewing breathtaking works of art! We received so many compliments that we are just raring to go for next year’s show, scheduled for April 20th-23rd, 2022…same place, same time!

The British Isles could not have been better represented this year: the charming Margaret Seaman with her incredible knitted project that has made her a star, Christopher Wilson-Tate and his awe-inspiring collection of antique quilts, Anne Kelly and her daring embroidery, Jo Colwill’s cozy, country quilts and a line-up of fantastic classes.

The work of our Japanese friends was also all the rage, as was the work of Ise and Clémence Gueib, to name just a few. In short, the menu was rich and everyone who attended, enchanted!

We are happy to announce that we will be welcoming a host of Australian designers for next year’s show…among them Brigitte Giblin, Margaret Mew, Judy Newman, Deborah Dorward, Karen Cunningham and others that you will learn more about in the next few months. Can you guess what the theme will be for next year’s contest? It will be revealed very soon in next week’s newsletter!
