Crafted for Quilters

Rijswijk Quilt Festival

An ideal opportunity for a spring break and a visit to one of the year’s first quilt shows, Rijswijk’s ‘Patchwork & Quilt Days’ festival. We’ve combined a day at the festival with two hand-sewing workshops with our accompanying textile expert, as well as excursions to the city of Delft, the Royal Delft Pottery Factory and Den Haan & Wagemankers Quilt store. A perfect start to a new year of quilting!

Our main project will be a snowpuzzle block cushion, a lovely little used version of cathedral windows. Kit includes a blue fabric taking its inspiration from Dutch design. There’ll also be an opportunity to learn and practice our embroidery stitches on a small picture of a bicycle, on which we can add details inspired from our time in Amsterdam. Ideal for framing as a momento of our time together, or us it as a centre of a pin cushion. - Sallieann Hsrrison
