The Challenge fabric this year is from a range called Floral Splendor by Andover fabrics.   Alison at Smartfrog has the fabric in stock.


Oast Quilters were very proud to have raised a significant sum at the 2016 Oast Showcase which allowed us to present cheques to three local Charities.  Headway, a charity that supports those with an aquired head injury, CLAPA (Hair Lip and Cleft Palate Assocation) and EKUBS, a breast screening support charity.  Presentations were made at Oast Open Meeting  on 24th September, 2016
