Fairholme Quilt Show: 10 - 4 this Saturday and Sunday (9-10 April)

After nearly two years of planning, the Fairholme Quilters 2016 Quilt Show is well under way. We set the venue up and hung the quilts yesterday morning, and opened for the afternoon, to a hectic rush of very welcome visitors, which has continued this morning. Thank you for coming and for the wonderful support for our guest exhibitors, the textile artists from Studio ARTES. We are promoting their fire appeal following last weekend's damage to their main studio, and our visitors have responded generously. A few photos ... there will be more! 

You will find more photos at Sew Miriam, on our Instagram account and Facebook page.

The Stained Glass Quilt made by Lyn Lang, Susan McMahon
and Peggy Molchanoff for the Donald Coburn centre in 2015
is on loan for the show.
