Quilt Showcase is an annual, judged Quilt Exhibition which is open to members of Victorian Quilters Inc. It is for all levels of expertise. The many categories available to entrants have various size, technique and style options that can accommodate the range of skills from novice through to expert.
Quilt Showcase 2017 will be held in conjunction with the Craft and Quilt Fair from 27-30 July at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre, Southbank.
Floor Talks will be held each day at 11.00am and 2.00pm.
These talks will address all aspects of quilting
- hand, machine, pieced, applique, art, pictorial, quilting etc.
- As well as ‘What Judges are looking for when they judge your quilt. Why this quilt won a prize and why this one did not win.’
Tours will commence at the appointed times starting from the Hand Demo Area. Bookings are not required. Just turn up and be in it.
Come along and enjoy the thrill of viewing over two hundred quilts which have been created by a diverse range of quilters from student to the professional – and all made with the love of our craft.
