Susie Anderson, tireless committee member, welcomes Maree Gerbhardt, President of the NSW Quilters Guild. Maree said she wouldn't miss the Springwood show. The quantity and quality of the quilts is always inspiring. Well done to all the entrants.

One of the guest quilters this year is Karen Cunningham. This is a wonderful opportunity to chat in a friendly environment with her about her classes and workshops. Karen is happy to discuss any aspects of patchwork and quilting with you. Karen has brought with her a small selection of her favourite fabrics for sale.

Karen, from the Stitching Post in Katoomba has a stall full of wonderful fabrics and notions. Some are only available for the Springwood Show. Karen has brought along a couple of Bernina sewing machines which she will happily demonstrate. This is a good opportunity to ask any questions and have a go with the Bernina sewing machines.


Thursday was a long day for all the committee members and the great volunteers. But we are not complaining!! 150 quilts were received between 10.00am & 12.00noon. By 6.00pm we were satisfied all quilts were hung to showcase them in the best way.

Today, Friday was the first day of the 2011 show. The weather has been kind to us, and the crowds today were very happy with what they saw. Stall holders were kept very busy, and over the weekend all the great stock should be purchased as must haves!

Today we were very fortunate to have the top hospitality students work their magic in the kitchen. The devonshire teas were the best. The choice of chicken or pumpkin soup along with the mixed sandwiches was more then enough to keep us satisfied.

Saturday hours are 9.00am - 5.00pm and Sunday 10.00am - 4.00pm. Grab a friend and come and spend a wonderful day at the Springwood Community Quilt Show.
