After posting this morning that I would send a copy of the blog post about the Best in Show to the Guild, Liz Whitehouse, the Chief Executive of the Guild left a comment on the original post and left a link to an update on the Guild's website. You can read it by clicking here.
I think it is great that the Guild has responded so quickly and it is useful to find out a bit more about how these things work. It can seem a bit cloak and dagger when you are not involved, even if that is not the intention.
I'm still not convinced it was the best choice for the future of British quilting; I feel it was a missed opportunity. But perhaps it is now time to move the discussion away from this year's Best in Show and have a debate about how we want to showcase the best, cutting edge quilting at the premier quilt show in Europe.
