GOLD COAST QUILTERS GUILD EXHIBITION 2013
Gallery 2August 10 – September 1, 2013
Treasured for their practicability to keep one warm in the colder months, quilts both conjure memories and evoke admiration for their craftsmanship.
Showcasing the best of Gold Coast Quilters Guild, this biennial exhibition explores not only the materials and techniques that form these exquisitely made quilts but also the narratives behind quilt-making.
The artisans have often been taught by their mothers and grandmothers, employing techniques passed down the family line.
A quilt made by members of the Gold Coast Quilters Guild and Wattle Quilters will be raffled with funds going to the Guild and Wattle Quilters. Wattle Quilters are a group of local ladies making and distributing quilts to various charitable organisations for those in need.
At the exhibition we will be selling Xmas decorations and other gift items all made by members of the Gold Coast Quilters Guild and all these fund will go to the charity Paradise Kids.
