Sunday 19 May 2019 Student Exhibition
20 intrepid quilters are just finishing their City & Guilds Patchwork & Quilting Certificate and Diplomas, having spent the past two years dyeing, designing, patching and quilting and lots of other things they never imagined trying under the guidance of tutor, Gillian Cooper, here in her studio in Balfron.
To celebrate the end of their course, they are having an exhibition of all their coursework and final pieces on Sunday 19th May 2019 from 10-4 at the McLintock Hall, Buchanan St, Balfron G63 0TT.
In addition to all their beautiful work, there will be tea, coffee and cakes in aid of Strathcarron Hospice and also Gillian will have her shop of textile and art supplies and goodies.
Entry is free. There is plenty on-street parking and there is disabled access.
