Elmer Day – Saturday 25 May

Elmer Day returns on Saturday 25th May 2019 with hundreds of events happening in schools, bookshops and libraries across the country, turning the whole nation patchwork.

This year is an extra special celebration, as Andersen Press are celebrating their patchwork pal turning 30 in 2019. What’s more, we are also celebrating the 30th anniversary of St Elizabeth Hospice, so what better excuse to do something fun?!

Some of our partners, sponsors and Learning Herd are getting involved – you can find further information about planned events and activities in the list below.
