After nearly two years of planning, the Fairholme Quilters 2016 Quilt Show is well under way. We set the venue up and hung the quilts yesterday morning, and opened for the afternoon, to a hectic rush of very welcome visitors, which has continued this morning. Thank you for coming and for the wonderful support for our guest exhibitors, the textile artists from Studio ARTES. We are promoting their fire appeal following last weekend's damage to their main studio, and our visitors have responded generously. A few photos ... there will be more!
