QUILTS IN CAE HIR

Our next annual outdoor exhibition will be on Sunday 30th and Monday 31st of the August 2020 Bank Holiday Weekend from 10am to 5pm. Please scroll down for past winners and download the entry form for all the details and information needed to join in!

'Quilts in Cae Hir' is an open-to-all exhibition. We welcome all quilts, from beginners to experienced quilters alike. Our event offers a fun, relaxed environment in which to show off your hard work, whatever your skill level. We do not bring in expert judges or stipulate methods used: we simply show off your quilts in a beautiful and relaxed setting. As an added element of fun we ask the exhibition visitors to choose their favourites, with prizes being awarded to the visitors choice top three in both the Open and Small Quilt competitions.
