Quilt Show 2019 evite.png


The Sew ’N Sews quilting group’s third show at Doongalik Studios which opened on Saturday, October 5 will be on display until October 26.

This year’s show features a challenge for the first time under the theme “Sun, Sand and Sea”. 

Challenges issued to the quilt members encompass a set of parameters which must be included in the quilt top, for example: applique, specific colour, size, etc.  These parameters will be listed at the show for viewers to determine whether or not they have been adhered to!  Viewers will be asked to choose their favourite quilt which they feel best fits the challenge.

Another first for the Sew ’N Sews will be a display of two group quilts which will be for sale and the funds donated to charity.  The design patterns of these quilts will be based on the ‘Cake Recipe’ technique and one of them will be a Christmas quilt.

The Christmas Room has been a popular feature of the previous shows as it will be this year just in time for the upcoming festive season.  On display will be holiday inspired quilts and a tree of handmade ornaments that will be for sale.  Proceeds from the sale of the tree ornaments will be donated to the Art Supply Drive which annually provides three selected public schools, including one from the Family Island, with much-needed art supplies.

The Sew’ N Sews is a group of between 15 to 20 ladies – most of whom are ex- teachers - who have been meeting for the past 25 years.
