Airing of the Quilts

Country music playing and adding more atmosphere to the parade, they were certainly happy chaps and looked as though they were throughly enjoying themselves.

A display of vintage sewing machines and I found out how old my green Singer was as there was the exact one sitting on a shelf and it was made 1958. I am amazed at how smooth my one glides across the fabric and she is 12 years older then me!

A patchwork from the Quilters of Northampton, United Kingdom was also on display.

The glorious hot sun shone so brightly all day and we took shelter in the shade of the big gums along they way.

I look forward to visiting Northampton next year for the Airing of the Quilts.
