Queensland Quilters is proud to announce that it will be conducting the first ever show for Affiliated Groups in April 2017. This show has been named QuiltConnect as this is the purpose of the show – to connect quilters from each of the Affiliated Groups with one another.
BROTHER INTERNATIONAL has partnered with Queensland Quilters and is providing wonderful prizes of sewing machines and Scan N Cuts as well as financial support. A big thank you goes to Jennene and Dean from BROTHER who have made this possible.
Each Affiliated Group is being asked to provide 5 quilts (none of which can have won a Blue Ribbon or Major Award at any 2Q or major State show) – these quilts will be judged for Best of Show and Best Group of Show.
Principal sponsors from the Queensland Quilt Show are being invited to participate in a Traders Mall so there will be plenty of opportunities to resupply the stash!
The launch of the 2017 Art Union Quilts, a silent auction and a wonderful bag raffle are just part of the attractions of QuiltConnect.
