Eastwood Patchwork Quilters: 3-5 May

 This is the glorious flyer for the upcoming 13th biennial Quilt Exhibition, being organised by Eastwood Patchwork Quilters. It is an illustrative section from one of the 2 colourful Canyon Star block raffle quilts that members have been creating. The stunning first prize quilt has an added magnificent applique bird in the centre. In 2011 their event was such a success that $8000 was raised as a donation to Achieve Australia. This year these talented quilters are supporting  Special Olympics Australia with raffle, donations and entrance monies.

Previous attendees at this very popular quilt show will know that the exhibition venue will again be the historic Brush Farm House at Eastwood. This year's quilt show will be held just one week shy of the 200th anniversary of Blaxland, Wentworth and Lawson setting off on the expedition that forged the first European crossing of the seemingly impenetrable Blue Mountains.

Exhibition details include:
Over 140 quilts on display
Craft Stall, Cafe, Quilt shops/merchants
Historical House tours
Demonstrations and workshops

There is Disabled Access and wheelchair available.

Venue: Brush Farm House
            Lawson Street Eastwood
