Wonderful to learn more about the organisation of the show. Thanks for getting the interview Sylvia.
Great interview !! And this year, i can get to FOQ and can’t wait
Interesting ‘behind the scenes’ information, I was there at the beginning and most years after. So good to have our own F of Q’s in the UK.
Interesting to hear a bit about the work behind the scene. Looking forward to another great show!

I’m happy to help quilting, my Gracie frame is calling out for more use! So please add me to the list, I am very happy to help, especially for these young people who I think need more support than they often get!
Hi I would love to help , I have a 6 ft Freestyle frame so I could do the smaller ones . Please contact me.
I can help, I have a mid arm sweet 16
Hi Maggie. I need more practice using my long arm so would be happy to work on some quilts.
I have an APQS Millie longarm 14 foot long machine and would be happy to help. The beast is restless!!
I have a Q’nique 15r and a Qzone Hoop Frame. I’m not very experienced but would be happy to help.
I agree with your ethic – if you are gifting then that’s fine, but they are gifting at your expense then that’s altogether different. In the least they should pay for the materials and a contribution to your time, or if not the time make a gesture!
We gave away the first Janome M100 QDC machine on 1st April — and it was no fool who won this.
Congratulations Rachel Withill.
But we are resetting the counter and we have…
my 1986 Janome is still working fine but a new one would be fabulous!
I would love to be able to replace my current Singer
Always room for a new machine in my life.
Wouldn’t it be nice to win a lovely Janome sewing machine…
I think I need to upgrade my very basic John Lewis machine!
How excited would I be to win this
Good luck everyone
What an exciting competition
I don’t have a Janome- yet!
Wow, I love Janome machines and would love to win this one
Would love to win a janome
My goodness, my old faithful, very ordinary basic machine, would be TOTALLY eclipsed by this amazing machine! Will need a lot of referring to the manual though methinks!!
This would be a brilliant asset! Great competition
Fingers crossed xx
How I’d love to win this!
Well done Rachel , hope you enjoy x
Pick me, pick me!!!!!!!
Love Janome and I would really love to win this one!
All is not what it might seem today! Check the date before you look any further!
Someone commenting on the foolish blogs posted today only might just win a lovely Riley Blake bag. And no that’s no joke eith…
All good things come to an end, and this is the final competition of this series.
Don’t despair as we are working on new ideas to keep you on your toes.
A simply fabulous first prize! What lovely designs and colours Makower are launching in April! Isn’t it also great that Grosvenor Shows are again supporting these competitions. I would love to enter, but as one of the UKQU bloggers, I obviously can’t. I am really looking forward to seeing all the entries, and I can’t wait to see all the special quilts and the memories that mean so much to other quilters.
Last year, during the Retreat for the Bloggerati [a marvellous event to be repeated this year], a plot was hatched and Quilts for Christmas Careleavers began. Well, if truth be known it was already happening, but i…
It is such a pleasure to be able to make a few quilts for this and hopefully there will soon be a quiltaton somewhere near where I live, I have so far this year made two coplete quilts, been involved in another one with a group of friends and have three tops that can go to a longarmer.
Thanks .. that’s a great contribution and one that will really make someone happy this year!
Yes, you read that perfectly correctly.
