Shipton quilters sell out tombola on first day

Christmas came early

Shipton Quilters 13th exhibition on 8th and 9th April 2017 proved to be a great success yet again.  They had a tombola where the prizes were an A4 journal quilt but they decided that everyone was to be a winner.  Despite having 120 quilt pieces the demand was so great that by early afternoon on the first day all were gone.

The setting of the show was in a local private school and the way the quilts were displayed and lit (hanging from specially constructed rigging) showed them to great advantage and provided excellent circulation space.  The stairwell in the main hall was decorated with a myriad of Christmas themed items
