At yesterday's annual general meeting of QuiltNSW, the prize winners of this year's Suitcase Challenge competition were announced. Addressing the theme "Remember", 45 entries were received. All entries can be viewed on our website and will, over the next two years, travel across NSW, SA and Tasmania as a travelling exhibition.

Congratulations to the following prize winners:

In 1st place, winning a one-of-kind BERNINA 215 sewing machine to be customised with artwork from her winning quilt, Linda Butcher with "For Valour".

In 2nd place, Sheila Beer with "In a Fog"
In 3rd place, Julie Harding with "Forget-me-not"

Judges Commendations:
Julie Harding with "Monday Wash Day"
Julie Harding with "Hopscotch"
Louise Stuart with "The Camera"

All entries, with their quilt stories, can be viewed on our website.

Congratulations to our prize winners and thank you to all the members who participated in the competition. Without your entries, we would not have the Suitcase Challenge exhibition that the entries become. Thank you to BERNINA Australia for coming on board as our first prize sponsor.

At our AGM, we also announced that the theme for 2018 is "Running Away with the Amish". Look out for the November Template, our quarterly newsletter to members, for more details and a full wrap of our AGM. We look forward to more members getting involved in 2018.
