The Big Textile Show

We were delighted to be invited to have a stand for Linus at The Big Textile Show this year.  We had such a good time last year, and were really looking forward to it.  This time the venue (Leicester Grammar School) was much bigger and more spacious so we were able to have two tables, and demonstrate as well as chat to people.  Here are Maria and me all set up.  Julie and Emily came too, which was great.  Thank you all for your support!  
The show was even bigger and better than last year, with the same lovely mix of quilting, weaving, knitting and art stalls.  There were also quite a few demonstrators and classes going on too.  Make sure you don't miss out next year!  

I took plenty of leaflets about Linus (we gave out about 50 last year), but although I had at least 100 this time, we ran out!  We also demonstrated this super windmill block, and ran out of instructions for that too!  In case you didn't manage to find out how to make this fabulously simple, yet effective block, here are the instructions.

One of the plus points about this block, is that there is only one match point, in the middle!  And when the blocks are joined, there is only one match point too!  Dig out your scraps and have a go!

You can try it on 10th October, as Roxanna of Hannah's Room in Coalville, is hosting a Linus Sewing Day from 9.30 am.  I will be there, so come and join in!  If you can bring your machine, that would be great, but come and see what's going on in any case.  See you then!
