Capital Quilters QUILTED exhibition

Have you heard about Capital Quilters' upcoming exhibition?  It's called QUILTED and it will be on at the brand new Lower Hutt Events Centre on 11-12 August 2018.


I'm getting excited about it already.  I'm fortunate to belong to a guild with some very talented members.  It was Capital Quilters' previous exhibition in 2014 that convinced me to join the guild.  I was amazed at the level of creativity right here in Wellington.

Here's a look at our amazing raffle quilt made by Helen Malachak and quilted by Cherie's Quilt Studio.  




Yes, one quilt - two sides.  Isn't it stunning?

We're going to have pop up shops including:
Nancy's Stitch Studio
Stitchbird
Busy Bee
Made Marion
Thimbles and Threads - Upper Hutt
Quilters Lane - Masterton

The brand new cafe at the events centre will be open all day, so you can rest your feet and grab a bite to eat with your friends.

I encourage you to make plans to attend now if you live locally.  We'd love to see you there.  I'll be there both days so if you spot me please say "hello".

I'm frantically trying to finish one quilt to enter, and also trying to decide which other quilts to enter.  Decisions, decisions.

The raffle quilt is amazing Wendy. What a fabulous quilt to win. Believe it or not, I'll be in the Wairarapa that weekend for my sisters birthday - family reunion, and wont be able to come over. Shame! :-(

I love your guild's raffle quilt. Our guild also makes amazing quilts to raffle, but I usually do not like the colours (too many batiks for me). I buy a ticket anyway!
