Sydney Modern Quilt Guild is proud to present the 2017 Modern Quilt Show Australia!
Australia’s 1st Modern Quilt Show was founded and presented in Berry NSW during May 2014 by Wollongong Modern Quilt Guild. The following year Modern Quilt Show Australia 2015 was once again hosted by Wollongong MQG, this time in beautiful Kiama.
With a vision to see the show hosted by the various Modern Quilt Guilds of Australia, the baton has now been passed. The first step is to Sydney who will host the fourth annual show, following a very successful Modern Quilt Show Australia in 2016.
2017 Show dates:
3 – 5 November 2017 10am – 4:30pm daily
Petersham Town Hall, Sydney
107 Crystal St, Petersham NSW 2049
Three days of quilting workshops with international and national teachers, fabric stalls and a huge display of modern Australian quilts.
Hosted by the Sydney Modern Quilt Guild.
2017 Awards Ceremony and Trunk Show:
We are delighted to announce the details of the Awards Ceremony and the Lecture and Trunk Show for Modern Quilt Show Australia 2017.
At 6pm on Friday 3 November, 2017 we will be holding the Awards Ceremony for the show, in the main hall at Petersham Town Hall. We extend an invitation to everyone to join us, particularly if you have entered a quilt in this year’s show!
Following the Awards Ceremony, we will present the MQSA 2017 Lecture and Trunk Show by the talented Kat Jones. Kat, the winner of Best In Show at this year’s QuiltCon in Savannah, Georgia, also recently won second place in the Innovative category at the WorldQuilt competition with Metheleyne Blue Mandalas. Most of Kat’s work focuses on bias tape appliqué techniques, and Kat will be teaching three such workshops at MQSA 2017. Come along on Friday 3 November to hear from Kat about her work and how she has put Tasmanian quilting on the world stage!
The Lecture and Trunk Show will be held at 7:00pm for 7:30pm at Petersham Town Hall. This is a ticketed event, and the entry price includes the lecture, trunk show, canapés, finger food, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
The cost is $55 and tickets can be purchased at www.trybooking.com/RSAJ
