Heather hard at work 2013

Heather Hasthorpe at the Norwich Bead and Textile Fair, held at the Heartsease Academy.

Each year Heather Hasthorpe and colleagues from Norfolk Quilters hang quilts and demonstrate machine piecing to promote our craft and the work of The Guild at the Norwich Bead and Textile Fair, held at the Heartsease. 

The event draws a large number of visitors from a variety of textile disciplines. There are lots of traders selling much more than beads, and displays of work including exhibition pieces and examples of work by C&G textile students.

Heather says “we encourage people to join the Guild and advertise the Quilt Museum in York and carry leaflets for quilting events.  Another great chance to spread the word and work with other quilters.”
