Friday Showcase with Chris Jurd on 3 August 2018

Chris Jurd is the presenter for our August Friday Showcase.

Chris has been a quilter for almost thirty-five years and has been teaching throughout NSW and interstate for the past seventeen.  Her work has featured in Australian magazines and associated DVDs.  In addition to performing the role of our Membership Secretary and a member of the judging team of QuiltNSW, Chris finds time to lead quilting tours to Houston.

Chris’s quilts have won several prizes at the Sydney Quilt Show, including a first in 2011 for “Lots of Dots” and a first this year for “Spinner”.  We look forward to seeing her quilts of strong colour palette in a variety of styles, with foundation piecing being her current preference.

Friday Showcase is held on the first Friday of most months at our QuiltNSW office, 276 Pitt Street, Sydney, close to Town Hall Station. Chris’s presentation this Friday, August 3, starts at 10am, with an entrance fee of $5 and $10 for guests.
