Scrap Happy (Event from 2023)



Discovery Centre, County Library, High Street, Gosport, Hampshire, PO12 1BT

View a fine exhibition of handmade quilts created with a special theme in mind…

The Scrap Happy Quilters are people of all ages and backgrounds, brought together in Gosport by their mutual interest in handmade quilts.

Each year they set a challenge, where the members are given a subject and they make a quilt on that theme. The challenge quilts are then proudly displayed during Heritage Open Days, for all to enjoy.

As always, their creative designs and skilled fingers will have produced an exhibition full of inspiring imagery, glorious colours, and very clever sewing.

Come along to view their detailed work and be inspired…

Duration: Allow 30 minutes.
