Friday Showcase - 3 May 2019 with Maree Gebhardt

This Friday 3 May, we welcome QuiltNSW Life Member, Maree Gebhardt, to our Friday Showcase to share her quilting journey.

In Maree's words, the day will be:

"... I will be walking along my quilting journey.  Starting in 1981 when I took my first patchwork lesson, my involvement with both the Quilters Guild of SA and QuiltNSW, quilts I have made to celebrate happy and sad events in my life and my love of hand quilting and wholecloth quilts."

Maree hasn't said it, but the morning is not to be missed ... over a 38 year period, Maree has perfected the art and craft of patchwork with meticulous applique and tiny, perfect hand quilting just the start.

Appropriate for a past President who very capably led QuiltNSW driving appropriate changes, Friday Showcase is on the move this month. Always a popular event, Friday Showcase has become standing room only for more than a few months so we’ve decided to trial a new venue – right next door to the guild office!

How will this work?

The guild office will open at 9 am for members and visitors wishing to drop their bags, library books, community quilts to the office, have a cup of tea or coffee and a homemade treat.
Doors to the meeting room at Sydney Mechanics’ School of Arts (SMSA) will open at 9.30 am and our small charge ($5 members/$10 visitors) will be payable at the door.
The showcase will start at 10 am at Level 1, SMSA.
The office will be closed while the showcase is underway and will then reopen at the conclusion of the showcase for the changeover of the quilts hanging, morning tea and usual activities.

Please show your support for this trial by coming along this Friday 3 May.
