QuiltNSW once again offers members an online option. This year we have a fully integrated Online Entry Form – payments are made by credit card through our secure ANZ portal and you’ll receive immediate email confirmation of your entry on payment. We encourage you to use the online method as it streamlines the payment and data collection process and allows our volunteers to better administer entries.

On Saturday the 13th of February 2016, Kerry Easton will give a talk and display of needlework implements for the Quilt Study Group of NSW. Kerry is a member of The Needlework Tool Collectors Society of Australia and has a wonderful collection of the needlework tools that we all take for granted and are of special interest to quilters.
Please bring along any examples of your historic needlework implements to show and share with us.

As Robyn Eves explains:
Whispered Threads arose out of a desire to try a Chinese Whispers style quilt challenge, a version of which I had seen exhibited in the UK in 2014.
As I understood it, it starts with an image/photo (or object) shown only to Whisperer (textile artist) 1 who makes a quilt in response to it. That quilt is passed on to Whisperer 2 who makes a quilt in response to it. That quilt is passed on to Whisperer 3 and so on. The quilts were restored to their owners after they had served their purpose and then finally collected for photographing and exhibition (in camera).
Each Whisperer was given 5 weeks to complete his or her quilt.
No one saw any quilt except the one immediately before their own and the quilts were revealed at the same time to the whole group for a private first viewing.
It has been a most interesting experience and there has been much discussion about the challenges, and possible changes that we would like to see in Whispered Threads 2016.
