What a great time we had; here are some pics of the girls at work in Sarah's class and what they were working on; they all gone at least one top done!!!
and some lovely comments from delegates (who are now safely back home)
I had a lovely weekend , thank you for organising it.Thank you too for the lovely goodie bag!I have sent my booking form and deposit of £50 today, for next year,2017,
I wanted to say ‘thank you’ to you and all the team for a great weekend. It was enjoyable to meet all the different women, to see their work and to spend concentrated, dedicated time on producing something lovely.
I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the weekend. This was my first retreat and it was wonderful. To just be able to do something you enjoy without any distractions was great
I just want to thank you and Maggi for a super relaxing weekend. It was great fun even if I did not get quite as much sewing done as I had hoped. However, I am now more confident about what I am doing and can, hopefully, do some at home.
The hotel was comfortable and so easy to get to.
I shall definitely be booking next October.
The dates are 7-8 Oct 2017 - booking form with details of the projects will be available shortly!
Some of you have noticed that when we send you an email about subscribing to the website, sometimes the webpage you go to looks a little bit different to what you expect to see at justhands-on.tv.
The reason behind this is that we are using a new subscription system for fixed term subscriptions (ie 1,3,6 and 12 month packages) to make it easier for you to subscribe. The new system looks slightly different to the Shop but the good news is that it requires fewer steps for you to place your order.
We set this new system up because some of you told us that you wanted a quicker and easier alternative to the PayPal system. If you want to use the new system to subscribe - just click here
For the first time since it started I was not on duty and took the opportunity to wander round snapping pics of quilts, catching up with people (sometimes literally bumping into them!) and shopping - what a great day.
Here are a few quilts that caught my attention (other than those in the winning gallery of course! which we have posted on our Facebook page - click here)
An entry from Kate Crossley (do you remember her stunning clock from a previous year?)
A detail of the winning quilt's stitching - amazing; however in the early years this would have been done by hand - no other comment other than to say rather than taking weeks that would have taken years.
and a couple of modern quilts that I could have taken home - (shame about the creases on one which didn't really show as badly at the event!)
