There are two events happening this weekend that quilters might like to catch – and on Saturday (today) you can catch them both.
Barn quilters have their exhibition on at the Mosman Art Gallery
Afterwards head north to Mona Vale for the market day at Patchwork on Pittwater but take note this is only on today Saturday. The address is suite 28 on the 4th floor of the Gateway Building, 1 Mona Vale Road, Mona Vale 9999 6159.
Thank you family, friends, Eastwood community, quilters from far and wide and anyone who had a part to play in our hugely successful exhibition this weekend just past.
We had an amazing time, immersed in the beauty and skill of our multi-talented EPQ members and thoroughly enjoyed showing off our work to those who visited. We belong to a wonderful group of quilty friends who offer inspiration, challenge, friendship and care.
1st prize to B. Priestly
2nd prize to Mary McNamara, Denisto e
Beautiful Brush Farm House is all dressed up ready for the show … Thanks to lots of hands to help get everything ready. You can see 140+ quilts over the two buildings, browse the craft stall (don’t forget the famous EPQ scrap bags), have a snack at the cafe and buy a raffle ticket to support Orange Sky Laundry, our chosen charity this year. Find us at 19 Lawson Street Eastwood, just opposite the netball courts. Plenty of parking on the weekend, may be a bit more limited on Friday.
We are proud to be supporting Orange Sky Laundry with our two raffle quilts made by members of Eastwood Patchwork Quilters. Our exhibition will be held at Brush Farm House, 19 Lawson Street, Eastwood from May 5-7, open daily from 10-4.30. Here is one of the quilts with the van.
If you are not aware of the great work done by the team, here is some information from the website
We are hopeful that, through our raffle ticket sales, we will be able to offer significant help to Orange Sky Laundry. So come along to our exhibition for a day full of quilts, handmade craft, tasty home baked goodies and buy a couple of tickets to help the team at Orange Sky Laundry continue their great work.
