New Quilt Show Category: Machine Embroidered Quilts

Did you notice the prize-winning quilts in Computer Aided Machine Embroidery section at Houston? The Guild is introducing a Machine Embroidered Quilt category for the Sydney Quilt Show on a trial basis. New category 16 is defined as follows:

Embroidered quilt made using computer embroidery design software or designs created for computerised embroidery systems including original, digitised design cards or discs. At least 25% of the surface must be embroidered.
Minimum size 150cm x 150cm. Maximum size 290 x 290cm.

If you have a computerised embroidery system on your sewing machine, this is a great opportunity for you to make and exhibit a quilt utilising its features. Quilt show entries close on Friday, 29 February 2008 so join the Guild (if you are not already a member) start planning your entry now!
