Sydney Quilt Show 2019: Activity Centre

The Activity Centre will be operating during the Sydney Quilt Show 2019 from 10am – 4pm Thursday to Sunday 20-23 June. This year we will have multiple areas showcasing many facets of quilt making:

  • Participate in the making of the Arterie Chris O’Brien Lifehouse blue and white hexagon quilt. 

  • Respond to the question #whyiquilt and watch a new quilt grow over the duration of the show. Simply write a reason you quilt on a fabric swatch and attach it to the base cloth, which will be on display. At the conclusion of the show, we will make the completed top into a quilt that will be used at future QuiltNSW events. 

  • QuiltNSW members will also be on hand to share the projects they are currently working on, both hand and machine.
  • Community Quilts will be focusing on the assembly, quilting and binding of the quilts they make for others. 

  • The Tresillian Centenary Quilt will be on display with information on its making and the designers,  Julie Kennedy and Cath Babidge, will be giving floor talks at 2.30pm

A hands-on quilt making area for everyone so plan your visit now.
