Norfolk's quilters and stitchers love two things - exciting, stimulating fabrics to use in their creations - and scrumptious home-made cakes.

They won't be disappointed on either front this weekend as Castle Quilters makes its sixth “fabric safari” to Mileham Village Hall on Saturday from 10am-3pm.

“Who would have thought when we embarked on our first safari to Norfolk in February 2003, that this would become such a regular and well-attended event for local quilters and fabric lovers,” said quilter Magie Relph of The African Fabric Shop.

“This year, we're welcoming two new East Anglian participants - Threads 'n' Things from Colchester, which stocks a wide range of quality embroidery threads, and Kiwiana from Newmarket, which carries exciting fabrics from New Zealand.”

Special guest quilter, Annette Morgan, former president of the Quilters' Guild and winner of numerous awards, will also

display some of her latest textile creations.
