This year’s event will be held on Saturday 15th September 2012 at Lutterworth College, Bitteswell Road, Lutterworth, Leicestershire, LE17 4EW, UK from 9.30am – 5.00pm, and really should be a ‘must’ for every quiller’s diary.
Then, on the following day (Sunday 16th September), quillers are invited to a ‘Shared Ideas Day’ in the village hall at Cotesbach, close to Lutterworth, from 10.00am – 4.00pm. This event provides another great opportunity to get together with other quillers, meet the experts and share techniques and inspiration in a friendly, relaxed and informal way. Everyone who attends is simply asked to bring along one idea or design to share with the others. For this event, there is an entry fee of just £6.00 per person, to include tea and coffee.
Both days provide wonderful opportunities to socialise with other quillers and exchange ideas.
You don’t have to be a member of the Guild to attend these two events – but becoming a member actually makes a great deal of sense when you consider all the other amazing benefits that go along with it.
