Friday Showcase with Susan Allsop - 4 August 2017

Our August Friday Showcase presenter is Susan Allsop. We welcome members and guests to see Susan’s quilts and hear the stories behind them as she shares her quilting journey in our Showcase on Friday 4 August at 10am in our Pitt Street office.

Susan began quilting in her student days in the mid 1980s, producing two single bed quilts which she still owns.  She has lived in several Australian capital cities and overseas, with her sewing machine a constant companion.  After moving to Sydney, classes at a local community centre reignited Susan’s enthusiasm for patchwork and quilting and her work has been further influenced by overseas quilting tours to Paducah and Japan.

Susan is a frequent contributor and participant in QuiltNSW events and she works behind the scenes in the preparation of The Template.  She recalls attending the Friday Showcase events early in her QuiltNSW membership days and it is with pleasure that we welcome her familiar face, and her exciting quilts, as she presents in August. 

QuiltNSW holds Friday Showcase at our office (just behind Town Hall station at 276 Pitt Street, Sydney) on the first Friday of most months with the presentation starting at 10 am. Visitors are most welcome so bring a friend along - $5 for members and $10 for visitors. The schedule of upcoming showcases for the rest of 2017 can be accessed on our website.

We look forward to welcoming you to our office for Friday Showcase.
