Melbourne Craft and Quilt Fair 2016

The Melbourne Quilt and Craft Fair is always a highlight on any quilter's calendar and it begins tomorrow and runs until Sunday July 31st.
It is always held at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre (affectionately known as Jeff's Shed), South Wharf. The Exhibition Centre is right across the road from Crown Casino.

I'll be there tomorrow and again on Sunday morning when I am doing white glove duty.

I hope to catch up with lots of friends and do a bit of shopping as well. My quilt is also in the judged show and the awards ceremony is on at 12pm.

I have been asked to attend the awards ceremony and that usually means that you have won a prize!!
I will also be at the awards ceremony in my capacity as President of Waverley Patchworkers to present a prize.

Here is a sneak peak of my quilt that will be on display at the show. It is called A Time for all Seasons.

Michele Hill said...

Wow Linda....your quilt is would have scored BOS for me!! I look forward to hearing about the awards (i did get an email from a very excited girl who had been in a class with me years ago and I let her have the drawings of an inspired Hermitage Museum floor quilt that I have never got around to making....and she had the call to be there for the awards too - very exciting!) Big hugs and stay warm xx
