Quilt Retreat in Scotland

Jo Avery has just announced today that she will be hosting a Modern Quilt Retreat this summer in Edinburgh.

Alongside the retreat will be a Scottish Modern Quilt exhibition at her shop, Avery Homestore, during August.  Here she is below on the right in her beautiful shop.

Her plan is for a smaller, cosier version of the Fat Quarterly London Retreat, over just one day, and more accessible to everyone in Scotland and the North of England.  Head on over to this webpage for more details and you can sign-up to be kept posted with more information including who will be teaching and when tickets are released (around Mid-March).  And of course you don't have to be just from Scotland and the North of England, you can travel from anywhere to join her.

  1. This sounds fantastic, but as I am already off to the FQR I don't think the budget will stretch that far this year, but just look at that shop, wow! : )
