The Springwood Community Quilt Show is very fortunate to have a vast array of local traders who set aside the last weekend in April to set up their businesses around the Quilt Show. The following are the shows permanent traders along with Bygone Beautys display. In no particular order we have:

Alexandra Callow - specialising in home made goodies and craft with emphasis on vintage sewing. From Mt Victoria. Pictured above

Unique Treasures - Original patterns and kits. Fabric scrap bags, quilts and variety of bric brac. Chris Jurd t/a Patchwork Fundamentals - Blaxland. Pictured below. Anne Sommerlad Designs and Patching with Petal. Pictured below is Anne with her patterns and quilts while Petal specialises in textiles, her own patterns and fabrics.

Home Patch - Annie Downes from Bathurst.Fabric, patterns, kits, woven wool and special show gift ware. Always popular, see below. The Stitching Post- Bernina Dealer. Embroidery patterns and threads.Karen Kirk from Katoomba.

Fortunes & Fairies - Lots of bargain priced fabrics, wool felts and kits.Leanne Masters from Richmond.

Lily Vale Treasurers with a Past - Vintage linen & lace. Buttons, china, sewing related goodies. Colleen Balkema from West Hoxton.

Bygone Beautys - Display of tea pots and fine china. His theme this year is 'unique and quirky'. Maurice Cooper from Leura.

All these businesses continue to support the Springwood Community Quilt Show each year with their own specialities, along with a fantastic diverse range of patchwork and quilting goodies. There is always something for everyone. Each store owner has plenty of stock on hand throughout the event, so if you can't call in until Sunday - there will still be plenty to choose from.

When visiting the SCQS, we know you will be inspired not only by the number and variety of quilts on exhibit but the fabulous traders stalls.

Please allow time to visit and support the stalls. Call in and say hello to the owners who love to meet both new and returned customers.

Unfortunately, during 2010 three Blue Mountains patchwork stores have closed. The Patchwork Shop in Blaxland, Vintage Patch from Springwood and Ribbons & Rainbows at Blackheath. The committee of SCQS thanks all the owners from these businesses for their support leading up to and during the show over the years.


  1. I'm good at supporting the traders!! I could easily buy everything on Alexandras stall, Home patch has lots of inspiration and the Unique treasures stall has some real finds. Anne and Petals patterns are beautiful and all the fabrics at the other stalls will be tempting me. Yay!!

  2. What a great post about the show again!
    We nust all support our local shops or they won't be there when we need them.
    Hope to see you all at the show - call by and say hello to Chris and Vicki at the Unique Treasures stand.


We always appreciate you taking the time to comment.
