2021-22 Sewing Calendar
POST PONED FARNHAM MALTINGS ONE DAY QUILTING SALE – Sunday 25th April 2021
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.
POSTPONED The Festival of Quilts, NEC, Birmingham 29th July - 1st August 2021
This show has been postponed to 29th July to 1st August 2021 and tickets are available the 17th May 2021, and this will be key to us returning to normal as it is a fixture for anyone looking for Patchwork and Quilting fabrics. There are hundreds of exhibitors including Fabrics Galore with many of fabrics, although we may not be able to bring fat quarters this year Paul's Ugly Shirts may make an appearance.
CREATIVE CRAFT SHOW AT WESTPOINT EXETER 23RD - 26TH SEPTEMBER
As this show has been described as being a haven for makers it seems only right we would be there. There really is something for everyone at this show with paper craft to jewellery making and of course dressmaking. So if you are going to be around area, make sure you book a ticket they are available now.
KNITTING AND STITCHING AT ALEXANDRA PALACE 7TH -10TH OCTOBER
This is another another MASSIVE show which has everything you could possibly want for Dressmaking, Quilting and any other Sewing in between. At the moment there isn't a huge amount of information available but as soon as there is. We will let you know.
AUTUMN QUILT FESTIVAL MALVERN 15TH -17TH OCTOBER
Also in October is this 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.
KNITTING AND STITCHING AT THE HARROGATE CONVENTION CENTRE 18TH - 21ST NOVEMBER
Again there isn't a huge amount of information available about when the tickets will go on sale, but we can guarantee one thing we will be there with all fab fabrics ready for you. As it is usually the last show of the year we make sure we bring everything a quilter or dressmaker could possibly want.
