Members of the Quilters' Guild of NSW Inc may need to arrive at the Office early on April 5, if hoping to see closely the clever designing and fine piecing work of member Catherine Butterworth.
Catherine is the next presenter of this popular monthly Guild event, and she will illustrate her personal quilting journey with many of her wonderful quilts.
As advertised in The Template Feb 2013, a hardcover book of photos of all quilts in the 2012 Sydney Quilt Show has been produced. This is indeed a professional publication and a delightful reminder of what was an extremely successful 30th anniversary members' exhibition. If you were an exhibitor or had any connection to last year's show, then this is a "must" for the coffee table or studio!
The final date for ordering of this lovely book has been extended to 28 March 2013.
The Order Form for this publication was in The Template. Alernatively, you can download the Quilt Show 2012 Book Order Form as a PDF.
