Show Report From the 2019 Springwood Community Quilt Show
Springwood Quilt Show 2019 is off to a Flying Start! It was quite a busy day for us and we are expecting even more tomorrow as our show grows and expands. Marg Sampson George, our Featured Quilter, had many come to see her Beautiful quilts on display on our stage too. It was also lovely to see the range of different stores with their beautiful wares, from fabric and patterns to vintage doilies and journal covers. There was truly something for everyone! The Cafe was a hive of activity and we had many visitors from outside the area coming to visit and have lunch or tea and scones in the sunshine. Thank you to all those who were able to volunteer and we hope you all had a busy yet fun Day 1! We are looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow at the show!
