Quilts at Mandelsons (Goulburn)
To coincide with the Hanging of the Quilts in Braidwood, Quilts at Mandelsons is holding its third quilt show.
As in previous years it will be a show with a difference using the magnificent Mandelsons to showcase the quilts. ALL items ( over 100) are for sale. The quilts and textile arts have been made by award winning textile artists Beth Miller, Wilma Cawley and Julie Woods. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own textile art which is now being sought after worldwide. The prices are unbelievable and offer a unique opportunity. All pieces are signed by the artists.
Claire Ayling Bali Batiks will also be selling her fabrics still only costing $15 per metre with some even cheaper. Julie Woods will have an amazing selection of Superior Threads. We will also be selling a range of gift items for Christmas presents.
