This will be the 28th year of the show, with the first one taking place at Floradale Nursery in 1990.

“All the quilts, wall hangings and small art pieces of work have never been displayed before.
“This year we have 34 entries of various sizes and styles,” said ECQG chairperson chairlady Anne Attenborough.
