Sew Days -2014

We are growing and changing as a group, and we are attracting members who are traveling significant distances to join in. Now seems like a good time to extend our hours and to trial a full day of sewing once a month. This will make the travel worth it for our long distance members. The Sew Day will continue to be on the 3rd Saturday of each month with the long hours starting on August 15th 2014.

The day will start at 9am, with Sew & Tell at 9.30am, followed by frenzied sewing!

Morning tea and snacks will be provided as per our volunteer roster, but you will need to bring your own lunch, or you can duck up the street to buy some.

We will finish up at 4pm, probably exhausted, but gloriously happy at a productive day of quilty bliss!

MODERN QUILT SHOW -this weekend, 3rd & 4th May

Wollongong Modern Quilt Guild has been working hard over the past few months to organise Australia’s 1st Modern Quilt Show.  This weekend is your opportunity to attend and see a collection of over 150 modern quilts from NSW, Queensland, ACT, Victoria and Tasmania on exhibit.  Tickets are $5 and children under 5 are free. 

Bernina Sewing Machines are the top prize for Best in Show quilt and Best in Show children’s quilt. Viewer’s are invited to vote for their favourite quilt with prizes awarded to the most popular quilts on both Saturday and Sunday.

The Modern Quilt Show is a charity event with all proceeds of the day going to Noah’s Shoalhaven supporting children with disabilities and their families. We have 2 stunning quilts for Raffle.  Raffle tickets are $2 each or 3 for $5.  

For a gold coin donation you can bring your hand sewing to sit, sew and mingle with other quilters, catch up with your online friends or just have a productive break after a long journey in the car.

We have some amazing stalls, so make sure you bring your wallet, but in case your spouse is dragging his heels over a trip to Berry to look at quilts, the famous Berry Markets and the Berry Bike Show are also scheduled on Sunday.
