The 2012 Annual Stonestead Outdoor Quilt Festival

Hi Everyone,

Can you believe it is getting to that time of the year again when  plans for the Quilt Festival are underway once more.

The volunteers are getting very organised and we can now give you details of what we are having.

First and foremost is the date, the 2012 Outdoor Quilt Festival will be held on Sunday 5th February 2012 10.00am – 4.00pm should the weather be against as was the case in 2011, the festival will be held the following Sunday 12th February 2012, but we have ordered wonderful weather, with just a light breeze so that we can see the quilts fluttering in the breeze.

We have expanded the categories this year to allow for new piecers and quilters, so if you are new to this lovely art and you have the first piece you have made, why not enter it into the festival, there is also going to be the usual visitors choice category too as well as the challenge.

This year the challenge theme is ‘Looking Through Cottage Windows’, the details for all category entries will be available the first week of December, and will be found on this site as well as in Sawmillers.

So now you have a taster of what is happening, I shall keep you up to  date with the progress, don’t forget to get those quilts finished or look at the ones you have completed that you might want to enter.

Until next time.
