New Category For Quilt Festival

Hi Everyone,

Well it is all go now preparing for the Outdoor Quilt Festival being held on Sunday 10th February, we have all ready received entries so don’t forget we accept on a first come first serve basis as line space is limited to our outdoor area.

This year we shall also have an additional display of quilts made in the classes that were held at Sawmillers during the past year or so, so you can come and be inspired by those as well.

For those that haven’t had a chance to look at the Registration Form we have a new category for Under 18 years, this will be known as a Certificate of Youth, so if you know of anyone who would apply in the category ask them if they would like to enter.

Our judge has confirmed that she is willing to come and judge the Challenge and the New to Quilting categories.

So the categories are:

Visitors Choice, Judges Choice Challenge, Visitors Choice Challenge, New To Quilting ( 2 Years or less) and Certificate of Youth 18 years and under.

So get stitching and finish off your projects or if you have one that you want to enter, get it out and fill out the forms and bring up to Sawmillers. Don’t forget this festival is for the pleasure and inspiration of attendees, visitors love to see what can be created by cutting and stitching fabric and then putting it all back together, so what you may think isn’t very good, is inspiring to others, the other important thing is that the money raised goes to Te Omanga Hospice.

The only other thing we all have to do is wish for a fine, light breezy day!!!

See you soon.
