We’re busy getting ready for the Festival of Quilts. We love the show! The fun of preparations, planning projects, ordering threads, designing handouts and editing film reels. We look forward to the buzz when we get there on the Wednesday and greet the familiar faces of the other stall holders and show staff. Then it’s all go as we unload, find the stand and set up the sewing quilting and overlock machines. We put up the frames and hang quilts and arrange the threads. Everyone all around us is busy creating order from all the jolly chaos as one by one the stands are finished and the Festival of Quilts gets ready to open the doors for yet another year. There’s nothing quite like it. You’ll find us in the online catalogue under Juki and at the Exhibition Hall 7 on stand A46 just like last year. That’s to the right as you walk in through the exhibition quilts. Our BIG NEWS this year is that Juki Club will be LIVE at the stand giving free demonstrations and workshops.
You’ll have the chance to sit down and sew free projects on our new Juki DX7 multi-purpose sewing machines. Most of our workshops are ‘drop in’ so you don’t have to book ahead of time.
