The Rotary Club of Gympie has, for many years, been proudly presenting it’s prestigious biennial Quilt & Craft Spectacular, an increasingly significant and impactful regional event. Now attracting visitors, exhibitors and artisans from throughout South East Queensland and northern NSW – from the Gold Coast through Brisbane to the Sunshine Coast and north to Maryborough, Childers and Hervey Bay – the event is considered one of the largest in South East Queensland.

Biennially presenting over 180 contemporary and traditional quilts and patchworks; amazing artquilts; inspirational exhibits of textile artworks and diverse artisan handcrafts; 45+ quilters/ crafters market stalls; an array of free demonstrations and more, the calibre of this outstanding event continually sets new benchmarks – and the event 2023 will continue to raise the bar.

The inaugural Ancient Crafts, Rare Trades Expo, as part of the Quilt & Craft Spectacular, was hosted in 2018 as an extra special exhibit – and proved to be quite a popular addition to the program. The Rotarians were run off their feet that year! The rescheduling of the 2022 event resulted in more time for the Rotarians to explore and reach out to more artisans and exhibitors… and by 2021, the Ancient Crafts, Rare Trades “exhibit”, with over 45 heritage artisans and tradespeople, could be called an Expo in its own right. Together with the Quilt & Craft Spectacular, the two events make an exciting platform to showcase heritage trades and crafts alongside contemporary and traditional creative arts.
