April 29, 2016 by Perthshire Creates

The Peacock and the Tortoise celebrate their fifth anniversary with a Quilting Exhibition at AK Bell Library in Perth.  Based in the centre of Perth, The Peacock and the Tortoise are a specialist patchwork and quilting shop who over their five years in business have developed a wide creative community through their regular and varied programme of workshops and classes.

Their Anniversary Quilting Exhibition showcases a vast and wide array of work all made by the large, geographically wide community of quilters and crafters.  Volunteers are on hand to answer any questions you may have.

There will be around twenty quilts exhibited at the library with an exhibition overspill in their spacious workroom in their premises at 29 George Street, Perth. Also on display are a number of quilted pictures using their signature Peacock fabric, all created as competition entries, the lucky winner will receive a sewing machine donated by Pembertons of Stirling.

Having been kindly donated a number of vintage quilts, these are also on display in their shop and owners Trudy and Mhairi are holding a silent auction, anyone is welcome to place a bid (most have a reserve put on them), the highest bid wins and all the proceeds will go to their current charity, Barnardos.
