Exhibition of Antique American Quilts

Avalon Quilters proudly invite all interested quilters and historians to a display of Antique quilts.

Two well known and respected collectors of quilts, Annette Gero and Trish Bloomfield have generously allowed quilts from their private collections to be available for this exhibition.

An entry fee and raffle proceeds will allow Avalon Quilters to support once again the Australian Mitochondrial Disease Foundation, 
An American Vintage 1940's quilt  "Frances Wheeler Quilt" will be on display, and will be the Raffle Prize. It is a top that was hand-pieced in USA and then 70 years later hand quilted by Avalon Quilters. Tickets will be $2 each or 3 for $5.00.

Quilts and other quality handmade items will be for sale.
