Sydney Quilt Show 2016

Are you all set to visit The Sydney Quilt Show next week? 

Our raffle quilt, Lots of Dots will be one of the 400 quilts made by Quilt NSW members that will be on show as part of the Sydney Craft and Quilt Fair.

Not only does the quilt show promise to be as amazing as ever but there will be some exciting displays being introduced this year. 

Hoop Display

An exciting sample of quilt hoops showcasing a diverse array of quilt styles will create an inviting entrance for visitors to the members area of the show. It sounds like a exhibit not to be missed.

Quilt NSW Groups

Quilt NSW Groups from around NSW will be displaying their work and be there on hand to chat to. This will be a great chance to see what different groups are doing, find out about their quilt shows or simply ask questions about being in a group.

Special Exhibitors

The two special exhibitors this year will be textile artist Carolyn Sharkey and quilter Merelyn Pearce. They will both have quilts on display for the duration of the show and giving floor talks each day.

Plus lots more - Meet the Teachers area, Quilt NSW Community Quilts demonstrations, and that's not mentioning any of the shopping.

Venue and transport

This is the last year the show will be held at Glebe Island before returning to the Exhibition Centre in Darling Harbour. If you haven't seen the show at the current venue it's really worth seeing. The building is spacious and filled with light. There is lots of on site parking and the public transport is easy with free buses running from Central Station and free ferries from Darling Harbour and Circular Quay.
