Special guest, Sue Duffy – Best of Show winner!

“Enjoyment of fabrics, yarns and stitching has been a constant all my life – starting out as a child making dolls clothes and progressing to my own when a teenager… graduating to real life and making baby clothes and bassinet sheets and blankets. Eventually came patchwork quilts, and more recently the discovery of textile arts and all the possibilities therein…”
