More details on the Entry Forms.

This year, we will be publishing a catalogue which will include each quilt's name, category and maker – for this reason, all quilts must be received by October 23 to be in the catalogue. Whilst we welcome any quilts received after this date, and/or delivered to the venue on Friday, November 2, they will be judged and displayed, but we will be unable to include them in the catalogue.

Gympie Patchwork Factory will liase with groups from the Gympie Region.

Judging will commence Friday, November 2 at 4pm, and ribbons and certificates of winners will be on display at the event opening time of 9.30am Saturday November 3 and displayed for the duration of the event.
