Or, as we hope everyone knows by now, not at Trentham but at Uttoxeter. The Events Pavilion at Trentham Gardens was badly damaged by a snowfall and there was no certainty that it would be repaired/replaced by April 9th so Margaret took the decision to relocate to Uttoxeter Racecourse. A wise move as the Pavilion site is still a fenced off hole in the ground. The Racecourse is really easy to get to from both the M1 and M6 – you need the A50, which is dual carriageway all the way to Uttoxeter and the Racecourse is clearly signposted. As its only about a 25 minute drive from Trentham you can still drop the family off there and come to the quilt show (or vice versa – they drop you off first). The Racecourse has caterers onsite and it’s a ‘proper’ building (this means it should be warm and will not blow away! B).
We will be there demonstrating and are busy trying to decide just what we will be demonstrating (apart from our skill at procrastination). We’re finishing off quilts both for the Show and to ‘dress’ our stand with – making sleeves and finding labels (I know Margaret sent me some, just which safe place did I put them in??), making binding….
We hope to see many of you over the 3 days (April 9th – 11th) – do drop by to say ‘hello’. And please let everyone know the venue has changed.
