Day 3 Sydney Quilt Show 2017

QuiltNSW welcomes you to Day 3 (23 June) of the Sydney Quilt Show 2017 from 9am-4.30pm at the International Convention Centre Sydney at Darling Harbour.

Our team of quilt ambassadors is ready to greet you and to share our members' quilts. You can't miss the ambassadors, they are wearing big smiles and brightly coloured sashes! (Quilt triptych in the background (right) is by Rachaeldaisy.)

On your way into the exhibition area, be sure to stop by the hoop display that showcases a diverse range of techniques and styles. You might even get to meet one of the makers.
