Craft4Crafters and quince weekend
This is the second year the Bath & West Showground is hosting October craft show, The Craft4Crafters.
As it is only some couple of miles from me, of course I had to go.
Most of it was the usual stuff, something for everyone, little top heavy with papercraft again, but that is just my opinion.
There was something new this year - a new quilt hall;
not very large, probably as this is the first year.
Several fabric stalls and some nice quilts on show.
I tried to take some pictures of quilts to share with you, but managed to take only a couple,
before being told "not to take pictures". This was the first time this has happened to me at a quilt show, but probably a sign of times 😕
So these are the only two,
this one was Yoko Saito's BOM, which I also made,
so I was interested how someone else made theirs.
There are many of these around the world by now, and they are all so different.
And this is the second one (my weakness for houses 😉).
The main exhibit was The Magna Carta Quilts. By then it got somewhat confusing what can be photographed and what can't, as some people were taking pictures on their mobiles, but not wanting to push my luck, this is just some info from the brochure.
I made some very small purchases (not like me at all, LOL).
The threads are really lovely, the lady I bought them from, brings them in from Spain.
In the meantime most of our garden refuses to admit that the seasons do change,
but the quinces were ready to harvest.
Some of them are really huge, over a half kg each!
To make a jam, I had to use a couple of pans this time,
and ended up with 9 jars!
And there are still some left over
and few more on the tree.
