As the drama of the pandemic plays out there are glimmers of things happening that might just be a sign of better times for us all, especially for traders and visitors to the Festival of Quilts .. or FOQ as we fondly refer to this prestigious event in our usual annual calendar.

We are rather excited to have been asked to offer both website and facebook members the chance to pre-register for tickets to this years event, before the tickets go on general release.

Mark the date and time in your diary – By registering your interest now you will be added to the FOQ ‘early access’ list and be able to book from Monday 17th May from 10am – 3pm, after which general release will go on sale.

The organisers of FOQ are staggering the entry ticket times to help with crowd control so by registering and getting early access you can pick their best entry slot and have the morning to book workshops.

Guild members will have been offered first bite so to speak the week before, and this is the first time FOQ have offered this privilege to all our members!
