Our fantastic vendors 

At our exhibition this weekend we have four great vendors with an amazing array of goodies to tempt us. Appleyard Cottage, Fabric Garden and Mercier are all based in Sydney and bring us a fabulous selection of fabrics and accessories. Wabi Sabi Design Australia are visiting us from Canberra and have the most unbelievable of Japanese fabrics and garments. 

Our charity raffle quilts 

This year we are supporting Allowah Children’s Hospital in Dundas with the raffle of two stunning quilts made by members. The winner gets first choice of the two, second place is the remaining quilt. Tickets are available at the show or from EPQ members
