Tuesday Treats: Dear Jane

Do you love working with small blocks with lots of parts?  or

Are you horrified by the thought of 4″ blocks made up of 42 pieces? or

Are you simply fascinated by the thought of making a quilt with 160 or more small blocks but are not going to be tempted?

Either way, the Dear Jane Quilt Exhibition is the place to be this weekend.

The Dear Jane Quilt Exhibition is being held at the Box Hill Town Hall, Whitehorse Road, Box Hill (Melbourne)

The Dear Jane Quilt Exhibition is being held at the Box Hill Town Hall, Whitehorse Road, Box Hill (Melbourne)

The Exhibition will be open from Friday 8 to Sunday 10th, from 10am to 4 pm each day.

There will be at least 58 Dear Jane quilts on display, mostly from the Melbourne area but some have been entered from regional Victoria and from interstate, so the exhibition should be quite varied.

In addition to the Dear Jane quilts, the Australian Quilters Association will  also exhibit 15 to 20 Reproduction  Quilts, made by  members, as the background setting for a collection of antique garments (dresses,night attire,lace etc) and period items.

There will also be a Market Hall, in conjunction with the exhibition, where you will find books, threads and vintage fabrics.

Our Cotton Mako’ 50 is the perfect “go to” thread for making small blocks and miniature piecing,  so we have arranged for Aurifil threads to be represented in the Market Hall.

Look for our pre-packed sets of Cotton Mako

We will have a good selection of Cotton Mako’ colours available for purchase from the Needles & Pins stand.

Entry to the exhibition will be $7 per head, and morning and afternoon tea will be available for purchase.
