The 9th Annual Springwood Community Quilt Show, to be held at Springwood High School once again, is the most well known Quilt Show in the Blue Mountains.
As this year's Show falls on the ANZAC weekend there is the opportunity to have a leisurely trip to the Blue Mountains to enjoy the Autumn foliage, AND the Quilt Show.

Members have been extremely busy finishing the Raffle quilt : the design is their interpretation of an English quilt by Grace Slater c1840. The original quilt is housed at Gawthorpe Hall in the UK.

Followers of Springwood Quilters would already know that the main beneficiary for monies raised from the yearly raffle quilt is donated to the Blue Mountains Rural Fire Service. The devastating fires last year in the Mountains affected many, and the RFS is continually grateful for the support from these creative local quilters as this has helped replace many supplies and equipment.

There are going to be over 150 quilts on display, supported by the presence of 13 stallholders, and a wonderful onsite cafe for refreshments.
