The Sydney Quilt Show is an exhibition of members' quilts. If you wish to exhibit in this year's show, it is not too late. Just complete a membership form and return it with your subscription payment at the same time as you send in your quilt show entry form.
It is expected that all quilt show entrants will donate some time to help out at the show. Even if you have not entered a quilt, please consider submitting a volunteer form. The quilt show is a significant undertaking and a strong pool of volunteers will ensure that the team is fresh and enthusiastic to carry out important tasks such as catalogue and raffle ticket sales and white glove floor monitoring duties.
Jennifer Ramsay presents the next Friday showcase at the Guild office at 10am on Friday, 6 February 2008. All welcome! ($5.50 entry fee)

Jennifer's own design, using colourful Kaffe Fassett materials in the circles and borders. The design is based on ideas presented in 'Circle Play' by Reynola Pakusich. Quilt is machine pieced and quilted.
This blog post contains updated information about the forthcoming visit by American quiltmaker, lecturer and teacher, Vikki Pignatelli.
