Festival of Quilts: A time to meet up with friends…

Amongst the many activities the Festival of Quilts offers, is the opportunity to meet up with friends.

In the 70’s Janet (M-in-L) and Philip (F-in-L) lived and worked in Zambia.  Whilst there, Janet (M-in-L) taught in a school with a lady called Marjory McKinven.  They have kept in touch over the years and when we started our yearly ‘pilgrimage’ to Birmingham Janet (M-in-L) happened to mention it to Marjory that we had started to go.

Well it turned out that Marjory also goes every year and meets up with her sister Marion.

We agreed to meet up for lunch (which was a few years ago now) and it is become a regular feature in our time there to meet up on the Friday night and have a meal together which Janet (M-in-L) and I always look forward to.

Marjory and Marion are both very talented quilters and in 2010 won at Loch Lomond.  They both submitted work this year in the festival and I will be posting pictures soon.

I’d love to hear if anyone else uses the exhibition (or any other for that matter) as a way of keeping in touch with friends?

Thanks for stopping by….
