Craft and Quilt Fair 2018 - The Point of Stitch

Wednesday 20 to Sunday 24 June 2018

We are excited that once again the Guild has a large display area at the Fair. The theme for 2018 is ‘The Point of Stitch’ where the focus is on using recycled and repurposed materials and stitched using the Effie Mitrofanis magic and zinger colour palette. All will be revealed in our four interesting and unique installations:

     Postcard sized - pointing out that stitches are used to make and mend in a postcard size
     Organza works - pointing out the importance of colour in stitch on white/ivory organza.
     Bottomless cup - pointing out an environmental issue in stitch
     Wow that’s Art – pointing out stitch can create colourful art with recycled objects

Visitors to the Fair – check out our Stand at the Craft and Quilt Fair in 2018, you won’t be disappointed.
