Calling for entries!

It's just one week to go until entries for our 2017 quilt show close!! That means it's time to get those quilts out, measure them up and enter the details on the online form.  We also have an option for you to print out a form, fill out the details and send it to us. We don't require photos and there's no entry fee.  It really couldn't be easier!

Did you know you can enter 3 quilts? so don't stop at one. We love all quilts and quilted items. They don't have to be your latest project, enter an old favourites, or a beautiful quilt your grandmother made. Have you got a vintage quilt that you'd like to share?  Encourage your friends to enter too.

Drop off day isn't until the 27th of April so you have plenty of time to finish any half finished quilts, gosh, you could even start a quilt today and get it finished in time. Entering a quilt in a quilt show is the best incentive to get projects finished.

Entries are open to everyone in the Blue Mountains region which we classify from Bathurst - Penrith to Windsor. If you live elsewhere but have made a quilt from a class or a pattern with a Blue Mountains teacher, or had it quilted by a Blue Mountains quilter we'd love to have your quilt in our show. We're pretty flexible about this, as long as the quilt has a connection to the Blue Mountains in some way then it's eligible.

We ask that you volunteer some time as well, we have lots of different jobs and the shifts are just two hours. We also have an option for you to make a cake or slice for the cafe. Read more about volunteering at this blog post.

The money we raise for the show goes to the Blue Mountains RFS. Last year we gave them a cheque for $8,000 and the previous year it was $10,000. We also donate money and supplies to the Textiles dept at the Springwood High School.
All funds raised are because of the wonderful quilts you enter and the valuable time you contribute to helping run the show.

We'll stop waffling now so you can get your entries in. Don't leave it until the last minute. Now is the perfect time! If you have any questions email us at  springwoodquiltshow@hotmail.com

PS, All the flower photos were taken on bush walks in Springwood.
