I did manage to go to a Quilt Show by Totley Brook Quilters in Sheffield. There were a number of quilts on display, a stall selling fabric and magazines (I bought a Xmas panel), the obligatory cake stall (we all had a piece of cake!) and a couple of workshops. Both the kids wanted to have a go at a workshop. Erin chose to make a cupcake pin cushion and Orla wanted to do a face on a square for a Project Linus quilt. In hindsight I maybe should have insisted Orla made a pin cushion too because she wasn't too happy that Erin got something to take home and she didn't.

After that it was still early enough to head to Bolsterstone for their quilt show. I was really surprised at how much there was and it was free entry, which was a bonus! There were lots of quilts and a few stalls, a raffle, a tombola and more cake. The kids won a couple of things on the tombola (cue bickering in the car over who gets to hold the handcream) and Alan took the hint that adding to my fabric and thread stash would be a good way to start shopping for my Xmas presents ;-)
