In Wendy's classes there is an emphasis on a fun and relaxed atmosphere conducive to a positive learning experience. Wendy gets great joy from seeing people achieve skills they thought far beyond their capabilities. She enjoys designing quilts, preferring modern styles, being heavily influenced by historic quilters such as the Amish and Gee's Bend Quilters. Many other traditional styles also inspire her modern designs. All of her quilts are machine pieced and quilted using a multitude of techniques. Wendy currently lives in the beautiful Port Stephens region and this also has a strong influence on the quilt designs she creates.

Chris Jurd is this year's featured quilter. Chris is a renowned quilter and very popular teacher not just in the Blue Mountains but also Sydney and Australia. There will be a special exhibit of her many quilts and she will be on hand during the show to talk to and answer any questions about her quilts. The raffle quilt is an award winning design called 'Lots of Dots' by Chris Jurd and was made by the dedicated members of the committee who all contributed to the sewing. The quilting was then completed by Susie Anderson of Leura Quilting. The show raises money for the Blue Mountains Rural Fire Service and the Springwood High School. Last year the money collected through raffle sales helped raise the $10,000 that was donated to Blue Mountains RFS.
There is a cafe on site run by volunteers serving delicious morning and afternoon teas and light lunches. The tasty soups, homemade cakes and freshly baked scones are always popular choices.
The show is held Springwood High School, Grose St, Faulconbridge. Friday 22nd- Sun 24th April. Open from 10am - 4pm each day. There is plenty of parking and wheelchair access.
Entry fees are $6.00 or $4.00 for pensioners and children. For more information about the show, visit the group’s website: springwoodquiltshow.blogspot.com
