2022 Show

The 2022 show was held in the Hunters Hill Town Hall, Alexandra Street, Hunters Hill from Thursday 4th August until Sunday 7th August. This was our 19th Biennial Quilt Show.
Continuing with our tradition, our show is a juried show. Judged, not by the 'quilt police', but by a judge who acknowledges 'what they like'. Our Judge this year was local celebrity, Roseanna Gallo OAM

We decided to support two charities - both deserving and touch the hearts of all women: essentially, supporting girls and women in times of need:

Days for Girls "Days for Girls Australia is a registered Australian not for profit and is a Country Affiliate with Days for Girls International. Volunteers across Australia mobilize to increase access to menstrual products and vital health information for women and girls around the world."

Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Women's Shelter who provide support for women experiencing domestic violence and homelessness through crisis accommodation and outreach services in the community.

Throughout the show, visitors enjoyed the exhibited quilts made by members of the group, and an additional exhibition, showcasing baby quilts made for the Grace Centre for Newborn Care at Westmead Children’s Hospital.
As well as enjoying the quilt displays, visitors were able to buy original waggas, quilts and gifts, shop for their sewing needs from the Material Obsession shop and enjoy tea, coffee and local, homemade goodies.
The 'Alysoun Ryves Best of Show' award was presented to Karen Malone for her quilt: 'Welcome to the Labyrinth'. Karen also won the Hangers' prize.

The Viewers' Choice and the Members' Choice Awards were unanimously won by Helena Fooij for her quilt, My MO BOM Journey.

On the final afternoon of the show, Group President, Elva Salter, organised the drawing of the winning raffle tickets. The winners were Julie Quinn from Manly Vale who selected the contemporary design: Liquorice Allsorts

and Lisa James from Greenwich won the traditional design, Circles of the Past

At the Group's 34th birthday celebrations in September, Quilt show coordinator, Meg Moodie, presented a large cheque to the Brain and Mind Centre at the University of Sydney, to continue the research work of Assoc. Professor Elizabeth Scott into youth mental health. On the same day, the little cot quilts were presented to caring staff at the Grace Centre for Newborns
