I had a very interesting conversation today – we have a special request from the Prop Buyer for a Film Studio in Melbourne! Here is the email I had in response:
Was lovely chatting with you today on the phone. As I mentioned I’m looking for a quilt to use in a film, preferably a classic american style, nothing too contrasting in colours I have attached some reference photos.
I know you said some are very expensive and if someone was also interested in hiring a quilt we would be happy to work that out too!
Examples of the types of quilts requested:
Quilt Showcase 2021

Are you aware that several Interstate Guilds will also be holding their usual shows as a Virtual Display? Keep checking the Events Calendar for details as they become available.
Important Dates for 2022
One Step Further
Our thanks to all those who entered OSF in 2020. The entries into this Exhibition are always to a high standard and this year was no different.
OSF is on Exhibition at Kyabram Town Hall Gallery until 18 December 2021. You can view all the quilts in a virtual display here.
Thank you to our sponsors Brother and Hillside Quilting, Margaret Parkinnson for judging and Sue de Vanny for coordinating this exhibition.
I am hoping to be able to visit Kyabram sometime in November after the travel restrictions have been eased.
The Wagga Project
You are invited to join The Wagga Project! The National Wool Museum asks communities across Australia to look through their closets and trunks for heritage quilts and waggas (also known as bushman’s blankets).
As custodian to one of Australia’s largest and most significant collections of heritage quilts and waggas, the Museum is always on the lookout for more examples and stories to share. Whether treasured family heirlooms, passed from generation to generation or new creations crafted from upcycled treasures of today – we want to know about them! Click here to learn more.
