2024 Sewing Calendar


Quilters Fair 2024 - Farnham Maltings

Sunday 14th January 2024: 9.30am - 4pm

The actual show is also a favourite with customers for many reasons including the crèche for children and partners with the Sunday papers which means the shoppers can really get on with the business of buying fabric. Farnham itself is also a very pretty little rural market town, with many other attractions aside from the Maltings and only 32 miles away from London. The list of other exhibitors is also quite vast considering it’s a small village in Surrey; these last year included both the Quilters and Younger Quilters Guilds and the Patchwork corner. This all makes it an ideal place for any quilter to start the year.

In May we have the Quilting Festival and what is truly lovely about this show is its location, at the foot of the Malvern Hills it really is as picturesque as that sounds with rolling hills and the odd sheep.  And our fun facts about Malvern is that, it's been famous for bottled spring water since 1622 and was the planned location for the evacuated British Government during WW1.
