It’s summer, it’s June, and that means ‘ROSES’ here in the UK. They are such a welcome sight, beautiful colours and sometimes a wonderful perfume too. This weekend we will be attending a Rose Show, but one with a difference. Squire’s Garden Centre at Badshot Lea near Farnham is the venue for a stunning display of roses, complemented by and exhibition of quilts.
The Rose Show is organised by the Royal National Rose Society with
help from the Surrey, Sussex and Kent region of the Quilters’ Guild quilts curated by Jules and Jan, this show promises to be a feast of colour and inspiration. (see comment below) I’ll be there on the Winifred Cottage stand, so come and say ‘hi’. We’ll have some interesting bits and pieces for you to see too. If I’m brave enough (and have enough space) I’ll be bringing my ‘FIRST QUILT’. Nothing special, and made very badly during a recent attempt to relax! It’s fine for it’s purpose, and I won’t accept any criticism from the Quilt Police……………..!
Saturday and Sunday 23rd/24th June 2012. Opening times vary on each day, but the exhibition is open at the same time as the Garden Centre. Follow the links above for more information.

Quilting! A wonderful craft, Myfanwy, congratulations on your first quilt. To me, it doesn’t look like the Quilt Police can have any grounds for questioning you 🙂
Little do you know, Kate. Them there Quilt Police are much to be feared 😉
I will not police you Myfanwy it is not that type of show! very pleasent and lots of fun quilts and traders,
we do have a viewers choice vote and the winners get prizes, I could enter your quilt if you want let me know tomorrow.
FYI the Quilters Guild have no connection with the show. Jan Ashwell and Myself run it with the help of some volunteers for charity. It is on the Squires website incorrectly too.
I believe you, Jules, but I know you have met them! I’m really looking forward to it. Thanks for explaining the mistake. I took the details from Squires as I couldn’t find anything anywhere else. I’ll put a note above. See you soon.
Wish I could just hop on over! I’d only have wonderful compliments for your quilt. Sight unseen…it’s the most gorgeous handiwork ever stitched by woman.
…hugs from a loyal friend…
