The raffle quilt Mountain Magic pictured above and designed by Petal Davies has started it's journey around the shops. Here is your chance to buy a ticket in this beautiful piece - it's at
Michelle Marvig's Patchwork Heart in Penrith at the moment. Tickets are $2 each and the proceeds go to Springwood High School and our local RFS group.
2nd prize in the raffle is a Bernina sewing machine kindly donated by The Stitching Post in Katoomba - gotta be in it to win it as they say!
Now check this out - handy carry bags with our show logo on the front. Available at the show for $2 from all stallholders so you can cart all those goodies you've bought around in style.

We have also received our bookmark flyers advertising the show and these will be available in the near future at a quilt shop near you. It gives details of the opening hours and includes a map on the reverse to help you find us.
Entry forms for the show will be available soon from local quilt shops so keep your eyes peeled if you'd like to display your quilting efforts.
We encourage all local quilters to enter something in this community event. It's not a juried show but there are viewers choice prizes and lots of other things like lucky door prizes each day.
There'll be more news about the show more frequently now that there are only 97 days to go!! The counter at the top takes a little while to load but it will keep us all on our toes I can tell you.
So keep us in your favourites and we'll keep you informed about what's happening as soon as we can.


  1. Isn't it great that the raffle quilt tours the all the shops! Can we get a logo bag earlier than the show? It's fabulous!!! I'd use that as my every day tote! The counter is great, not long to go, I'd better get sewing!!

  2. Love the colours in the quilt. A departure from previous quilts in style and colour which highlights the gorgeous area we live in.
