I have never been to this exhibition before so was very interested to see how big it was and if they had a good variation of quilts on show, also if they had plenty of SHOPS...
It definitely could be done in a day, we arrived just after 10am and had pretty much done the show by mid afternoon. They have a canteen serving coffees, cakes and lunch. The hot food choice was either jacked potato's or.. or the carb on carb action of a very Scottish dish of Macaroni Cheese served with Chips (fries to my American readers), I am not sure how this became a Scottish dish but it something you will see on pub menus all across the very north of England and in Scotland. I have to say I was very tempted but opted for a far healthier option with more food groups than carbohydrate and fat.
I was pleased to see more tree quilts to feed my new obsession
