25th Anniversary Challenge

To celebrate the Guild's 25th Anniversary, the theme challenge for 2007 is "Looking Forward: Looking Back". The quilts are displayed at the Guild's Annual General Meeting in October and the winners and Viewers' Choice are announced. After the Annual General Meeting, the quilts become a touring suitcase exhibition travelling all over Australia for up to two years. They are returned to the makers at the end of the tour.

The deadline for entries is 28 September 2007. Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, there are some special prizes for the challenge this year:

  • First – Singer Featherweight sewing machine donated by BrimBin Farms (Quilts and Crafts Shop 14 Centerpoint Arcade Victoria Street TAREE NSW)
  • Second – Decorative wooden chest containing full range of Madeira threads donated by SSS Pty Ltd
The challenge is open to all Guild members and entry is free. Quilt size 50cm x 70cm - portrait or landscape with hanging sleeve. Quilts may be made using any technique or material. However, they should conform to the definition of a quilt, i.e. three layers. More information and entry forms can be obtained from the guild office.
