Ar­ca­dian Quilters Inc Bi­en­nial Quilt Show

Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - Community News - Sub­mit­ted by Jill McGuin­ness Trea­surer Ar­ca­dian Quilters Inc.

Ar­ca­dian Quilters Inc held their bi­en­nial quilt show 9th and 10th Septem­ber in the Gal­ston Com­mu­nity Hall. The show was very suc­cess­ful. The black quilt pic­tured above won best of show. It is hand ap­pliquéd, em­bel­lished with em­broi­dery and beads.

The other photo shows just a snip­pet of what was on dis­play. There were over 100 quilts cov­er­ing all as­pects of quilt­ing. The funds raised will be given to lo­cal char­i­ties.

We were spon­sored by the Bendigo Bank in Gal­ston. We also had the priv­i­lege of com­pany from Cherry Pie De­signs from Somersby, Sew Can I from Wer­ring­ton County, and The Patch­work Shop from Mul­grave. A big thank you to all in­volved and spe­cial thanks to all the vis­i­tors who came.

The quilters will be pre­sent­ing a se­lec­tion of quilts for sale at the Glenorie Grow­ers Mar­ket in Oc­to­ber and Novem­ber. A won­der­ful gift for some­one spe­cial.
