Camp in the City

Camp in the City provides a whole weekend working on projects that you either want to start or complete. Friday 5.30 to 9pm, Saturday 9am to 9pm & Sunday 9am to 4pm.

We’ve found it is a great way to get together and have a whole weekend working on projects that you either want to start or complete while others also keen on quilting and patch working do the same – it couldn’t be better.

If you can not come for the whole weekend feel free to come along for the Friday night or either Saturday or Sunday.  You could pop in for a few hours over the weekend. You can leave your machine set up over the weekend and come and go as it suits you.

It’s fair to say we have a lot of fun!  Its a great way to check out what the others are doing.
