Quilt Showcase is an annual, judged Quilt Exhibition which is open to members of Victorian Quilters Inc. It is for all levels of expertise.
It is part of the annual Craft & Quilt Fair – with lots of workshops & traders to add to the excitement.
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.
Message from the President
The committee wishes to advise that after careful consideration we have decided that Quilt Showcase will not be held in 2020.
Many things have changed in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the majority of the committee are unable to attend Showcase due to age or health and key volunteers also advised they would not be attending. We considered how quilts would be received and handled to protect the volunteers from being infected with coronavirus. The social distancing requirements at the quilt show would impact on the setting up, take down and the myriad of tasks that make a quilt show a success.
As previously advised we are not holding a raffle in 2020 and to reduce close contact with the public, we would not be demonstrating patchwork and quilting techniques if the quilt show was held.
The committee has a duty of care to all our members and we are of the opinion that the risk to your health and safety is too great for us to have a quilt Exhibition in 2020.
BERNINA Australia recently advised that there will not be a Best of Australia Award for 2020. The quilts judged as Best of Show at each State and Territory Exhibition during 2019, will be displayed, judged and the winner announced at Australasian Quilt Convention in April 2021.
We hope you understand that this was not an easy decision to reach and we look forward to working with Expertise Events and BERNINA Australia to present Quilt Showcase not only in 2021 but for years in the future.
