Around 100 Appliqué Quilts will be on display, including quilts by three members of our own quilting group - Wendy, Jude and Rhonda.
The Group anticipates between 500 and 800 visitors through their doors with quilters from all over Australia and even as far away as Norway and England coming to Castlemaine to see the Group’s finest quilts on show.
All proceeds from the Exhibition will be used to buy a new Day Chair for the Oncology Department at Northeast Health, Wangaratta Hospital. Patients use these purpose built chairs when they receive chemotherapy. The Castlemaine Appliqué Group wants to buy a new chair for this regional hospital to support the care of cancer patients in their regional area and is hoping to raise $3,500 from the weekend.
Amongst the Group’s members are quilters from all walks of life and all corners of the State; published authors of quilt books, international prize winning designers and machine quilters, quilting teachers, through to relative newcomers to patchwork and appliqué. All are valued members of the Group and share their love of appliqué quilts.
