Church Hougham

Every three years the tiny village of Church Hougham on a windy hill top between Dover and Folkestone holds a weekend Village Festival. It's very friendly event a short walk from one end to the other with things to see and do along the way. Wendy leads quiltig and crafting th village and the ladies are very prollific; the 12th century church of St Lawrence is packed with qults, more are in a marquee and a few more in the old schoolhouse where teas are served.

Wonderful show and I would have loved to have see it. Shame it's so far!
We found a lovely quilt fabric shop on Saturday during our trip to Ross on Wye, Herefordshire and I ended up buying but only a "Frozen" panel for one of my grandies. An easy peasy sew!
Are you going to Malvern in Oct? My group has a coach trip to the show and I'd love to say a quick "Hello" if you will be there.
