Entries are now closed for the 2014 Quilt Show

Thank you everyone who submitted entries into this year's Quilt Show.  We received over 160 entries, we look forward to receiving these into the committee's care on Thursday 25th April from 10.00 am. 

A requirement of entering in the show is that the quilt has not been exhibited at the Springwood  Show previously. As the show is now in its ninth year, just think how many quilts have been made over the years . . . . .

 Marilynn and Chris will now start planning the layout. With the all important measurements supplied with the quilt, they do a great job. Thank goodness these two have the maths brain!  It isn't just a matter of where to hang what size quilt, the correct number and sizes of quilt rods and frames have to be hired from the Quilters Guild of NSW.

Over 40%  of entrants have volunteered some of their time during the show. Whether this is before hand with setting up, in the cafe, at the welcome desk, white gloving, pulling down at the close of the show or one of the many other support duties, this is very heartwarming for our committee members Petal and Tania who will now start their task of drawing up a roster. If you ticked the volunteer area on your entry form, expect to hear from one of the girls soon.

We have a few new traders coming to our show this year.  More details in another post. I will share one photo with you, just to get you guessing.
