Craft and Quilt Fair June 2018 - The Point of Stitch

We are excited that once again the Guild has a large display area at the Fair. The theme for 2018 is ‘The Point of Stitch’ where the focus is on using recycled and repurposed materials and stitched using the Effie Mitrofanis magic and zinger colour palette. All will be revealed in our four interesting and unique installations:
