Camp in the City: 22 to 24 February 2019 dates

Camp in the City provides a whole weekend working on projects that you either want to start or complete and you get to go home and sleep in your own bed.

Camp in the City operates from Friday 5.30pm 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.
