Plan Your Visit to the Sydney Quilt Show

The quilts are in. Judging day is over. Set up is currently under way at Glebe Island (see the video below) and the Sydney Quilt Show 2016 opens tomorrow! Here are some tips to help you plan your visit.

Getting There

The show is at the Sydney Exhibition Centre @ Glebe Island 41 James Craig Road, Rozelle. Transport options include:

  • FREE ferries from Darling Harbour (10 minutes) and Circular Quay (30 minute trip)
  • FREE buses from Central Station (25 minute trip)
  • DRIVE, TAXI or PRIVATE CAR. Park before 10am and save.
  • PEDESTRIANS walking from public transport points can catch the FREE shuttle bus.
See the Expertise Events website for full details or download the How to Get There flyer.

ALERT: If you are travelling by train on the Illawarra / South Coast lines, there will be trackwork on those lines on Saturday and Sunday, 25 and 26 June 2016.

Awards Ceremony: 1pm Wednesday

The awards ceremony is at the new time of 1pm on Wednesday 22 June 2016. A comprehensive online gallery of prize winning quilts will be posted on the QuiltNSW website soon after that. The results will also be shared on QuiltNSW Facebook page and Instagram.

In the meantime, you can download a copy of the Sydney Quilt Show Catalogue (1.8MB PDF).Find out where your quilt will be hanging, read about the special exhibits, look up the timetable for the Meet the Teacher demonstrations and more.

An abridged version of the catalogue is available at the show. If you have entered a quilt, you can collect your copy from the volunteer sign in desk. Remember to wear your exhibitor ribbon and/or membership badge.

Quilt Show Photography Policy

And don't forget to pack your camera or smartphone! You are welcome to take as many photos as you like of the exhibition for your own personal use. Posting your photos online is fine too so long as you have obtained consent from the quilt maker and include attribution. Please respect the copyright of our members. We look forward to a stream of colour, excitement and quilts on Instagram at #sydneyquiltshow.
