Quilting exhibition: from pop stars to the Queen of Chartres

This year’s Berry Quilting Exhibition is again being set up and run by CMRI Gerringong members in return for the door proceeds, so they are keen for as many people as possible to visit.

The exhibition is run by Elizabeth Buggelde of the Berry Patchwork Shop in conjunction with her annual quilters’ retreat.

The works of seven internationally acclaimed tutors will be on display, as well as panels made around the world for the Medieval Project which was launched in Nantes in France in April. This is the first time the Medieval Project, which features interpretations of five different medieval linocuts, has been on show in Australia. Other quilts on
display will compete for three textiles art prizes, and there will be a number of trade stalls.

A group of ladies on the Central Coast who are regulars at this event have generously made this year’s raffle quilt for the CMRI. The raffle will be drawn at the November Quilt Show at Gerringong.

Details: 29-30 August, 9.30-4pm,
Berry School of Arts, $5
