Our show is now in its 6th Year and returning to the lovely venue of the Uttoxeter Racecourse. The show offers a warm , friendly atmosphere using many of the traditional buildings offered by the race course giving it the village feel and enabling visitors to freely explore all that the show has to offer.
There will be a multitude of specialist trade stands so that you can stock up on all your quilting essentials; there is also a wide range of Quilt and Embroidery exhibitors who will be demonstrating some interesting skills and giving visitors the opportunity to have a go as well.
There are also workshops running throughout the 3 day event which you can pre-book before or during the event (subject to availability) where you can learn new skills and create and take away your work of art.
Our sponsor, Brother Sewing Machines, are joined on their stand by the very popular ‘Sweet Pea Machine Embroidery Designs’ from Australia. Allison Nash, the founder and designer of Sweet Pea, will be there in person on each day of the show to introduce her latest designs. You will have the chance to speak to Allison about her innovative designs and to purchase them. This is the only show that she will be attending in the UK in 2018.
