Hunters Hill Quilt Show: 13-15 August 2010

The 2010 Hunters Hill Quilt Show will be held on Friday 13th – Sunday 15th August 2010 10:00am –4:30pm. The show is held in the Hunters Hill Town Hall, Alexandra Street, Hunters Hill.

Visitors are invited to browse, admire and critique the exhibited 80 unique quilts made by members of the group. They can buy new and old quilts, add to their stash at the Material Obsession quilt shop and finally, stop for tea or coffee and home made goodies.

One of the special features of the 2010 show is the Wagga exhibition. This features quilts traditionally made of necessity and from materials found in the Australian home including wool and clothing scraps. The end result of today’s wagga is a textile piece that perfectly compliments contemporary interior designs.

The show raffle provides an opportunity to win a choice of two raffle quilts, one traditional in design, Rhapsody in Red, a red and white red work quilt and the other a contemporary design, Sunrise, a riot of funky flowers.

The proceeds of the 2010 show will be donated to Giant Steps Sydney: a school catering specifically for children with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder. Hunters Hill Quilters have had an ongoing relationship with Giant Steps Sydney for several years contributing quilts to raffle and auction at their fundraising events.

David Koch, co-host of the popular Channel 7’s Sunrise program, finance expert and author is this year’s judge. David will choose 10 quilts, judged on the basis of aesthetic appeal, a ‘best of show’ and 9 judge’s choice.
