Quilt Shows are Back

 Hi Everyone,

A very busy meeting this week. It was great to see so many of you there - 29.  The old 'buzz' was back!

Margaret and Carolyn shared photos and stories of the making of our Bicentennial Quilt that was displayed in the HH Town Hall from 1988 to 2021.  Council has suggested that they hold a quilt display in their museum along with the Kellys Bush quilt and the Council Coat of Arms quilt. The display would be for 3 - 4 months.

Also Alysoun Ryves daughter arrived with two large boxes of fabric as well as a quilt that will be offered to RPAH to raffle to raise funds.

We have quilt show to look forward to again. I can't wait.

First off is Blue Mountains from Friday 22 to 24 April from 10 - 4 pm. They have a new venue at Warrimoo.

Eastwood Show is from 15 - 17 July at Roselea Community Centre.

Our very own Hunters Hill Quilt Show from Friday 4 - Sunday 7 at the Hunters Hill Town Hall.

QuiltNSW has a new venue for their show this year. It is at the Grand Pavilion, Rosehill Racecourse from Friday 21  to Sunday 23 October from 10 - 4 pm. They will also have a Vendor Marketplace so you can pick up any of your sewing needs.

Everyone should have an entry form for our show. There are spare copies if you need one.

Show and Tell:

Baby quilt from Grace

Two from Jane

Ten baby quilts from Carolyn. The top quilt used Sheila's orphan blocks from the cupboard. If you need inspiration have a look in the cupboard for an orphan block or two. Make them into something fun and useful. Let your imagination run wild!

A lovely scrap quilt from Marie K. for the refuge

Until next time ......
