The Springwood Community Quilt Show

The Springwood Community Quilt Show
The 2016 Springwood Community Quilt Show is looking to being the best yet with over 150 quilts of all styles made by the talented quilters of the Blue Mountains region. In addition to the impressive display of quilts there will be traders tables selling a variety of quilt related items, fabric, quilt patterns, quality handmade goods and vintage sewing treasures.

Chris Jurd is this year's featured quilter. Chris is a renowned quilter and very popular teacher not just in the Blue Mountains but also Sydney and Australia. There will be a special exhibit of her many quilts and she will be on hand during the show to talk to and answer any questions about her quilts. The raffle quilt is an award winning design called 'Lots of Dots' by Chris Jurd and was made by the dedicated members of the committee who all contributed to the sewing. The quilting was then completed by Susie Anderson of Leura Quilting. The show raises money for the Blue Mountains Rural Fire Service and the Springwood High School. Last year the money collected through raffle sales helped raise the $10,000 that was donated to Blue Mountains RFS.

There is a cafe on site run by volunteers serving delicious morning and afternoon teas and light lunches. The tasty soups, homemade cakes and freshly baked scones are always popular choices.

The show is held Springwood High School, Grose St, Faulconbridge. Friday 22nd- Sun 24th April. Open from 10am - 4pm each day. There is plenty of parking and wheelchair access.

Entry fees are $6.00 or $4.00 for pensioners and children. For more information about the show, visit the group’s website:
