We are a group of local (or previously local) friends who have been meeting for nearly 15 years, and share a passion for not only traditional, modern, creative and original patchwork and quilting, but all forms of stitching.
We held our first Quilt Show and Sale at the Rylstone Memorial Hall over Easter 2015 and the following week.
No-one in our group had any previous experience in presenting a quilt show... We're still not sure how we did it, but we got it together in time for our opening and we had hundreds of visitors through the doors over the following few days.
This was the first time we had exhibited our quilts and we were hoping to attract not only like-minded quilters and patch-workers, but also locals and tourists to the area. We weren't disappointed.
Most of the quilts in our exhibition were for sale and ranged from mini-quilts, art quilts, and baby quilts through to queen-sized bed quilts. Other beautifully stitched and knitted items were also for sale.
To say the least, we all learned a lot....
We unanimously considered our first show to be a great success, and have recently held our once-again very successful 2017 show with renewed enthusiasm and sence of accomplishemnt of just what our little group can achieve.
