Now summer is here, the Quilt Shows are coming thick and fast.  In just two weeks time, I will be visiting The National Quilt Championships at Sandown Park (20-22 June), on the Sunday.  It is the only big Grosvenor Show I manage to visit now and as it is held in what was my hometown, I love to visit.  Last year, it was one of the best exhibitions I had seen, so I am really looking forward to seeing what is in store this time.  I also find it a great opportunity to meet up with all my quilting friends and I know that this year, there are many going on coach outings, as well as making individual journeys.  Let’s hope the weather keeps fine for us all.  Here is just a taster of one of my entries.

Another exciting exhibition is taking place in Utah, USA.  Sadly I will not be able to visit this one.  Some time ago, I was asked to contribute some of my work to be displayed at the International Quilt Invitational Exhibition at the Brigham City Museum The exhibition runs from July 1st to August 23rd, so if you are in the vicinity, you may want to put that on your visiting list.  When I look at the list of contributors, I am very honoured to have been invited to display 10 items of my work, amongst them.

Later in the year, the Costume and Textile Association (Norwich) will be celebrating its 25th Anniversary by holding the Geoffrey Squire Memorial Competition and Exhibition “Silvery Threads”.  The exhibition of chosen items will be held in the Hostry, Norwich Cathedral, from 2nd to 13th October 2014.  There is still time to enter a piece of work into the competition, as the closing date for entries is 9th August 2014.  Entry forms can downloaded from the C & TA website
