Quilts in the Spring

Would just like to inform you of a fantastic show taking place next weekend that we will be attending.  Every couple of years Southport Quilters present an Exhibition of Quilts in Birkdale, Southport.  During the two day event they display a huge amount of stunning quilts made by all their members in the Methodist Church and Church hall.  This year in addition to their usual display of quilts they will be including an 'Aspects of Spring' exhibition of suitcase quilts (quilts no larger than 24" x 24") plus fabrics, handicrafts, cushions and plants will all be available to purchase.  Refreshments will be available and might I add many very delicious homemade cakes.  All is in aid of various charities.  We are grateful to have been invited to join in and we will be bringing along many new fabrics and packs with some special offers just for the show.  Really worth a visit....Oh, did I mention the cakes?
