Grant Award Program
Every year the profits of the Raffle are allocated to the Grants account.
Grants are available to current Individual Members and Member Groups to further the education of quilt making throughout the state.
The Grant will be awarded to an individual quilter or quilting group for an approved event or endeavor or for further study and training in the area of patchwork and quilting.
It is expected that the beneficiary of the award would share with fellow quilters the skills, knowledge and expertise they may gain – thereby further developing and raising the levels of skill and creativity in patchwork and quilting generally.
Applications for Grants may be made at any time.
For further information you can contact the current Grants Co-Ordinator by email to [email protected].
