The Modern Quilt Show Australia is excited to announce our primary sponsor for 2017
Established in 1990, and responsible for importing and distributing many of Australia’s best loved sewing brands, Blessington has been a supporter of modern quilting since the early days of the movement’s arrival in this country.
Managing Director Ernest Arulkumar says: “It is important to us to support the development of the Modern Quilt movement as it grows. We love the direction and creativity we see in the Modern Quilts at each show.”
For Best in Show, the company has generously donated a Pfaff Ambition Essential sewing machine, featuring Original IDT technology for perfect fabric control when piecing and quilting.

Walking through the doors of Melinda Smith’s shop Quiltsmith, in Sydney’s Annandale, is a treat for any quilter. The broadexpanse of shelving is home to so many delicious fabrics, with colour groupings that shine across the store.
The range of fabrics here is diverse and eclectic: they stock a large selection of modern fabrics including Cotton + Steel and Art Gallery fabrics, traditional Japanese fabrics, 1930-50s & 1800’s reproduction fabrics.
Quiltsmith truly is a full service quilting store. As well as fabric, there is a great teaching space for their popular classes, and a well-stocked haberdashery department. They are particularly proud of their comprehensive selection of templates and papers for EPP.
