Uttoxeter 2016

Our little sewing group took a trip out on Friday to the British Quilt and Stitch Village 2016 Show at Uttoxeter Racecourse.  We thoroughly enjoyed the day and got to see a host of lovely quilts on display.  If I could achieve half the level of skills shown by some of those quilt makers I’d be a happy bunny.

We did try to be discriminating, but there were too many tempting stalls there, so as usual we spent far too much money on lots of lovely fabric and notions.  I nabbed a 9 degree wedge ruler too, as I want to have a go at a bargello in the round pattern I’ve seen on the internet.

Then it was back for our usual Friday night sew-in where we got to cast envious eyes over Angie’s brand new Janome Atelier 5 sewing machine.  A thing of beauty with more brilliant features than you can shake a stick at.  David Nutt, owner of our local store,
DC Nutt Sewing Machines
in Bloxwich, was once again on hand to offer Angie expert advice and help in choosing just the right machine.

And just to put the icing on the cake our rookie sewist, Barbara, has recently purchased her first ever sewing machine from DC Nutt’s too!
