A BIT MORE THAN 1 WEEK TO GO NEWSLETTER!
Next weekend, October 30 – 31… and it’s all systems go!!
Well, it’s all systems go, and still the benchmark goes up and up! Read on about 2 very special exhibits that we can now announce. We are privileged to be able to showcase these 2 extraordinary highlights, to be displayed among a sea of wonderful quilts, artisan exhibits and markets. Can’t wait!
- ABC LANDLINE’S “QUILT OF MEMORIES”: The Rotary Club of Gympie are honoured to be amongst the lucky contenders to be able to present this tribute quilt which celebrates 30 years of Landline being on air – at this year’s Quilt & Craft Spectacular. “It’s a time capsule treasure, memories and emotions of hundreds and a tribute from the loyal Landline audience.” Each square, submitted by sewers and creators from throughout Australia, tells a story. Read on below.
2. A SIGNIFICANT AND HISTORIC VINTAGE QUILT circa 1893, MADE IN GYMPIE FOR GYMPIE: The Rotary Club of Gympie is proud to be assisting in bringing this important quilt back to Gympie, where it will make it’s debut appearance, after being lost for decades, at the Quilt & Craft Spectacular, in the Pavilion. This quilt has an amazing provenance – read on below.
Please find below a pdf eBrochure which contains all you need to know about coming to the event, including parking, site maps, highlights, markets… and cafes! This is an updated version of the flip book I sent last week. While I think the flip-book worked well, I sent this for those who want to print out pages etc.
And a heads-up:
– three great cafes on site, for all dietary requirements… and for no diet requirements!!- guest quilter Nicky Haron will be onsite to meet’n’greet at her display on the upper floor of the Pavilion, 10am – 12 noon- the event hours have been extended – there’s so much to see! Saturday 30th 8.30am – 5pm, Sunday 31st 8.30am – 3pm- if you have a choice of days to come, Sunday is traditionally quieter than Saturday
