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.
Entries have opened today and will remain open from now until 11.59pm on Sunday 23rd October. Entries must be made online here and it is a juried show.
Many 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.
If you were not able to purchase a catalogue, or regret that you didn’t – its your lucky day, you can download a 72 page digital catalogue of the exhibition for free.

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.
Congratulations to Maureen Teager on being the front cover girl for this new magazine/book Inspired by Vintage Quilts. Maureen’s stunning quilt Tribute to Gilly’s Find is published in beautiful colour and with full instructions.
You should be able to pick up a copy at your local newsagency or a digital copy online from Zinio.
