Hever Quilt Show make and take cushions

Young Quilters at the Hever Handmade and Homegrown Festival 2017

The Region 2 Hever Quilt Show has a section dedicated to Young Quilters. So if you would like to see their work and maybe take part in an activity you can get free admission to the show as long as you are accompanied by a paying adult.

1st – 3rd September 2017

All you will need to do is show your YQ membership card at the gate.

There will be a separate marquee for YQ, which will not only exhibit the challenge for this year, ‘My favourite Book’ (download  challenge details and entry form), but other items made during the course of the year.  GCSE work from Babington House School, Chislehurst will also be on display.

In addition to the challenge, Young Quilters are invited to make an Outside exhibit.  Download the rules of entry and entry form here , instructions on making a 3D bird here  and the 3D bird template here .

A make and take will be running at the Hever Show for children between the ages of 5 to 18 years. They can make and take any one of the following (see below for pictures):-

·  A Shoulder Bag

·  A Fabric Box

·  Personalize Cushion

·  Mobile Phone Case

These 4 projects are made on the sewing machine with adult supervision.

In addition, there will be a hand project of a Christmas Wreath.

Timings for make and take:-

Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd 11am to 5pm (last project starts at 16:30pm)

Sunday 3rd 11am to 3:30pm (last project starts at 3pm)

Children under 5 will be able to select a small gift, as they are not permitted to participate in the make and take.
