The deadline for our show draws nearer 

Today was the first of three days activity towards our 2017 exhibition, it starts this Friday May 5 and runs through to Sunday May 7th. Piles and piles of quilts arrived at Brush Farm House ready for judging. 


Our judges this year are Amanda Daly, Chris Jurd and Kathy Doughty. Thanks so much ladies for giving of your time so generously today. 


And of course, tasty food featured as at any quilting event …. bodes well for our weekend cafe! 


Now we just have the wait until the offical opening for the results of the judging!

hazelhurstMany of our members made the trip to Sutherland Shire for the recent exhibition, Labours of Love, and it was wonderful. The gallery is excellent and we enjoyed a coffee or meal at their café which was also very enjoyable.

Congratulations Maureen

Scrolling through Instagram recently, I spotted a lot of chat about a great new publication from Express Magazines. the cover caused me some interest as I recognised the quilt as being made by an EPQ member.
