Here is a message from one of our members/ sponsors about a quilt show in Goulburn next weekend:
Quilts at Mandelson’s of Goulburn
Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 March; 10am-4pm
Entry by gold coin; all proceeds go to local Anglicare Emergency Accommodation.
This is a quilt show with a difference! There will be a huge array of superb quilts from well known quilters from this area and beyond. Our guest quilters are Beth Miller and Wendy Keegan (from QuiltsbyPattern), and we will also be showing prizewinning quilts from this year’s Canberra Show.
The ‘difference’ is that the quilts will be shown around the magnificence of Mandelson’s, using the building and antique furniture to display them to their best advantage. The quilts vary from traditionally pieced designs to contemporary appliqué patterns, and will be sure to inspire.
There will be items for sale from Claire Ayling Bali Batiks (contemporary cotton batik fabric), Julie Woods Superior Threads (top quality threads in stunning colours for every occasion), Beth Miller and Wendy Keegan from QuiltsbyPattern (the designs can be seen in the quilts on display), and also Bungendore Country Patchwork will be with us with an array of needs for quilters. Please note that purchases can be made with cash or cheque.
As the quilt show is taking place there will be no High Tea this month, but Claire and Steve will be serving tea, coffee and wonderful slices and cakes in Mandelson’s dining room.
The Quilt Show is to coincide with Goulburn’s Heritage and Roses Festival.
Mandelson’s is on the corner of Sloane and Clinton Streets in central Goulburn. Entry from the front door in Sloane Street.
