Early in August we were in Birmingham UK for the Festival of Quilts with Golden Textures of Australia, showing the variety and excellence of our Art Quilters. It was so successful, with wonderful comments in our Visitors Book, and crowds clustering around the work. Favourites were Earth Bones #2 by Dianne Firth, My Country My Way by Cathy Jack Coupland, and the iconic When Hopes Ran Dry by Noelle Lyon.
One of the good things about big quilt shows (and this is the largest in Europe!) is that you have fantastic opportunities to network, which opens up new ventures. We were invited to bring the exhibit to France in April 2016, so now we will be sharing at Quilt Expo en Beaujolais in Villefranche en Saone 13th – 16th April.
Set up in Birmingham is so well organised with a team of textile students from Birmingham University, great experts with the drill! The photo shows our dedicated team hanging Noelle Lyons work.
