Quilt Study Group talk by Melinda Smith on 20th October 2018

On the 20th of October Melinda Smith, the owner of the Sydney inner city shop, Quiltsmith, will give a talk to The Quilt Study Group of NSW. 

The talk will be held at The Glover Cottages, 124 Kent Street in Millers Point and is titled "Quilting from Behind the Counter - A Shop Owner's Perspective Over the Years".  

By using a timeline which shows how Quiltsmith evolved and is adapting to current market changes, Melinda will cover how Australian quilting has changed from her point of view as a quilter of many years' experience, a quilt collector, a bricks and mortar as well as online quilt shop owner, and as a sponsor of prizes at quilt shows. Of course, she will bring many quilts to show us as well.

Please encourage everyone you know who is interested in quilting to come along to the Quilt Study Group of NSW talks. The Glover Cottages is a beautiful light-filled venue for the talks and it is an easy walk through The Rocks area from either Wynyard or Circular Quay train stations. Quilt NSW guild members pay $5, non-guild members pay $10. Afternoon tea is provided and the talks start at 2pm. Check the Quilt NSW website or the latest Template Newsletter for more details.
