This is the second time the Challenge has been held in Tasmania, inviting quilters from all over the world to take the nominated Hoffman fabric to form the basis of a piece of art. Similar competitions are held annually in the US and New Zealand.

Three quilt exhibitions were a feature of the Fair, which included a wide range of crafts, from 230 artisans.
