Is there a special someone in your life that you would like to thank?
A mentor, someone who has impacted positively on you, inspired you…. or a special family member?
Or simply someone that you’d like to acknowledge by saying “I think you’re great”, “ I admire you” or
“I appreciate all that you do”.
The committee of the Gympie Rotary Quilt & Craft Spectacular 2023 are calling for submissions – individual embroidered and/ or quilted blocks, 8” wide x 4”- 6” high – which will be pieced together to create an “Honour Quilt”, acknowledging and honouring special people who have made a difference to someone else – a relative, a friend, a mentor etc.
Each block submitted will acknowlege that special person, created using any form of stitchery, embroidery, applique, embellishment, beading etc. They can be flamboyant or subtle, elaborate or naive, humourous, quirky, sentimental – it’s up to you! Whatever best represents the person you are acknowledging.
Anyone can enter
Any level of experience, no age limit – experienced quilters and/or embroiderers to novices, stitched by hand or machine. It’s not about the skill, it’s about the story.
You can submit as many as you like.
Submit a block to honour that person!
Each finished block can be: sent to the committee (see next page for details); delivered to with your quilt entries to one of the drop-off locations; or brought with you to the Gympie Rotary Quilt & Craft Spectacular, October 2023.
