Mimram Quilters have been asked to produce some small quilts on the theme of ‘Scraptastic’ for Grosvenor Exhibitions, touring round several venues in 2018. So look out for these on their fliers. Very exciting. Mine is already finished!.

This was set up in the late 1980s and I was a founder member. It is a magnificent organisation and now has a great museum in York, where three exhibitions are hung every year, along with contemporary groups’ quilts in smaller rooms. The museum is at St Anthony’s Hall in Peasholme Green (YO1 7PW). I am now the Editor of the Traditional Quilters Group newsletter In the Frame – to join this group you must be a member of the QG and pay an extra £10 per year subscription.
