Tea & Cushions

Romsey Quilters vintage tea by vintage dorsetIts always lovely when clients come back to you for more – so we were delighted when we heard from Jackie whose lovely daughter Melanie had a vintage hen party last year about a fundraising event for the Romsey Quilters.

The plan was to throw an afternoon tea party with local tea and cakes to coincide with a morning of quilting news marking the end of Jackie’s term as chairwoman of this thriving quilting group. Romsey Quilters have been meeting for over 25 years and have almost 140 members running regular events and workshops for quilting enthusiasts across the New Forest area, Hampshire and Dorset.

This event gave everyone a chance to get together for a fun afternoon with sandwiches from the locally based Jan’s Sandwiches, cakes from the WI-run Country Markets and our favourite Sgt Bun’s famous scones.

With 60 guests attending it was a really great event and everyone had a lovely time… check out the Romsey Quilters online here and our pictures here of the gorgeous vintage tea!
