On Saturday the 11th of March the first QSG talk for 2017 will focus on the research and documentation of textiles. Sue Shaw, a social historian who researched military quilts at the Powerhouse Museum for her Masters and co-curated the 2007 ‘From Mothers to
Daughters’ quilt exhibition with Dr Annette Gero, will talk first about her
recent purchase and subsequent research into this rare Crimean war quilt that
was made in Australia.
Bring along your own textile items to share their story with us. The Glover Cottages (124 Kent St, Sydney) is a beautiful light-filled venue for the talks and it is an easy and interesting walk via The Rocks or extension to a Barangaroo excursion from either Wynyard or Circular Quay train stations. Entry is $5 for Quilt NSW members and $10 for non-Guild members. Afternoon tea is provided and the talk starts at 2pm.
