OVER 150 SIMPLY STUNNING QUILTS WERE PRESENTED IN 2018!  from traditional quilts and patchworks to contemporary, exploratory and artquilts – from award-winners to novices, from throughout the region, as far south as the Gold Coast, to Brisbane, through the Sunshine Coast to Gladstone, Childers, Maryborough and Hervey Bay in the north.

We hope to see you at the next Gympie Rotary Quilt & Craft Spectacular – scheduled for late October/ early November 2020.
