Caloundra Quilters are holding their 13th Biennial Quilt Show on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th July from 9am to 4pm at the Caloundra Arts Centre, 5 North Street, Caloundra (behind Caloundra Woolworths). Caloundra is situated on the beautiful Sunshine Coast, just one hour north of Brisbane.
With over 100 members in the group there is sure to be an impressive display of quilts of all designs and different techniques. The theme of this year’s show is “Beside the Sea” and members are responding to the challenge of making a place mat sized quilt in that theme in which 50 per cent of the supplied fabric must be incorporated. These quilts will be on display and visitors are invited to vote for their favourite.
Members will also be conducting quilting demonstrations including “English Piecing”, machine embroidery using a laptop computer and hand quilting.
A lovely quilt in the seaside theme has been made by several of our very talented ladies and has been valued at $3000. A $400 craft basket, full of goods donated by our local merchants and $120 Voucher for “Daisy’s Place” restaurant in Glenview, make up 2nd and 3rd prizes in the raffle. The proceeds from this raffle will be donated to a local charity, “Multicap Sunshine Coast Day Service”. Multicap is a high needs disability support organisation in Queensland, providing individual, family and respite support networks, opportunities and programs.

Some of our local merchants will have stalls at the Show and promise many bargains. Members also have a sales table with many high quality handmade goods for purchase.
Caloundra Arts Centre Association’s Gift Gallery is also open during the show. The Gallery has an amazing array of Arts and Crafts for sale.
Entry is $5.00
