      Hi Jill.

      I’m quite new to Thailand, and would love to reach out to you about sewing generally in Bangkok. I think it was one of your posts that led me to a sewing machine shop where I was able to buy a new set of legs for my industrial lock stitch machine. Thank you.

      Kind regards, Reid

      There are no plans for a Quilt Festival in 2016, as far as we know. It looks like there isn’t going to be one.
