Diary of Lacemaking and Quilting Events

If you have not been to a Lace or Quilting event you are missing out!

Imagine a whole day or evening to meet people with similar interests to your own. To browse through the wide range of supplies on offer, items often not available in the high street, to listen to an interesting talk, maybe even see a Lacemaking or Quilting demonstration – absolute Magic!

A small charge is made for the talk.
