European Quilting Day 20th June (EU-QUiP Day)

For the past few years there has been a Worldwide "Knit in Public Day" - day meant to encourage knitters to go out and knit in public.

Following on from this, the European Quilting Association (EQA) is trying to start a similar event for quilters:
The European-wide quilting in public day
This will take place on the 3rd Saturday in June - that's the 20th of June in 2009.

The 20th June is also the longest Saturday of the year - so there's plenty of daylight hours with which to quilt and sew in the open air (weather permitting of course!).

It's quite simple - all you need to do is to arrange to meet up with some other quilters in a public place and take something convenient to work on.
