2019 challenge is “Spots”

The  awards were presented at our AGM in October 2019.
Prizes to be awarded:
The Prue Paape Award for overall excellence
The Liddy Rekker Cup for machine quilting
Quilters & Patchworkers of Otago Award for hand quilting

This year you buy a kit which will have a selection of fabric with spots- these fabrics must be visible in your entry. You are able to add as many other fabrics as you like. When you hand in your completed entry at our September meeting you will get your money back. All kits have been sold.

The entry can be of any size and could be a bed quilt, wall hanging, table runner, small quilt, bag or anything you like provided it is made with 3 layers- a top, batting and a backing.

You will only be limited by your imagination.

Your entry is to be handed in at our September 2019 meeting.

Camp in the City 9 to 11 August 2019

Camp in the City provides a whole weekend working on projects that you either want to start or complete and you get to go home and sleep in your own bed.

Camp in the City operates from Friday 5.30pm to 9pm, Saturday 9am to 9pm & Sunday 9am to 4pm.

We’ve found it is a great way to get together and have a whole weekend working on projects that you either want to start or complete while others also keen on quilting and patch working do the same – it couldn’t be better.

If you can not come for the whole weekend feel free to come along for the Friday night or either Saturday or Sunday.  You could pop in for a few hours over the weekend. You can leave your machine set up over the weekend and come and go as it suits you.

It’s fair to say we have a lot of fun!  Its a great way to check out what the others are doing.
