Sydney Quilt Show 2018 Prize Winners

Congratulations to Jenny Bowker who was awarded BERNINA Best of Show 2018 and first prize in the Pictorial Quilt (Open) category for her powerful quilt After the Last Sky:

Statement: 14th August 2013, Egyptian security and the army opened fire on supporters of President Morsi occupying the square of Raba'a el Adawiya. Between 817 - 2,000 were killed in the massacre. Based on a photo by Mosa'ab Elshamy.

Congratulations also to Caroline Sharkey who was awarded BERNINA Best of Southern Stars, first prize in the special themed category Southern Stars for her quilt Star Talk:
Statement: The Night Sky and Magnitude of Stars seen from a Desert Landscape just blows your mind! The Southern Hemisphere offers some spectacular sky, such as the Magellanic Clouds. A Star Talk 'On Country' by Aboriginal Elders is a MUST!

Photography Policy Reminder

If you are attending the show, you are welcome to photograph the quilts in the show for personal use and to post images online or in social media provided you acknowledge the quiltmaker(s) and, if applicable, the designer of the quilt. It's easy to do - all the details are on the quilt tags! Many quilt labels also include social media details so that you can directly link to the maker's website, blog, Facebook or Instagram profiles.

If you share images of quilts in social media, help us generate interest in the show by tagging your photos with the hashtags: #sydneyquiltshow, #quiltnsw and #craftandquiltfair.
