By Helen Shingler:
This morning I popped along to take a look at the Charity Patchwork and Quilting Exhibition which has just started at Villavin Crafts. Villavin Farm is situated close to Holsworthy Golf Club on the Pyworthy Road in a delightful rural setting. I haven’t been there before although I was aware it existed and thought this was a good opportunity to pop along and take a look.
Villavin Crafts is a Patchwork Shop, Workshop and Quilt Retreat Centre. It runs Quilt Retreats where you can stay in a cosy cottage and sew away during the day with delicious home cooked meals and yummy cakes provided. However, if you are local and don’t need accommodation there are also regular workshops and Sew-In days which you may be more suitable.
There is also a well stocked on site shop selling fabrics, notions, wadding, kits, patterns, buttons and embellishments! For further contact details and information, you can check out the facebook page.
The Exhibition is open again tomorrow and Saturday from 10.00 a.m to 4.00 p.m. There is also a Sales table, Refreshments including scrumptious home-made cakes, pasties and sausage rolls and a Raffle.
All proceeds will be donated to a chosen charity. Admission £2. There is also plenty of parking.
