Sevenoaks Regional Day

The Sevenoaks Regional Day was held at the Sevenoaks Community Centre on Saturday 12th May 2018. The first speaker was Jo Baddeley, owner of Puddleducks Quilts, who gave an insight into what is involved in owning a quilt shop and her decision to move away from owning a physical shop to concentrating on the online business and shows. The guest speaker was Philippa Moss who gave a very interesting and amusing talk about Durham and Welsh Quilts with many examples dating from the late 19 century and early 20th century.  After lunch there were 6 workshops to choose from, ranging from small folk art pictures to a 3D bird or tulip.  A number of traders were present for visitors to stock up on fabrics, patterns etc.
