It is just less than 3 weeks till the Tauranga Patchwork and Quilters Group Exhibition to be held over 2 days ; Friday and Saturday the 13th and 14th of September at the Tauranga Race Course. (Cameron Road ) 10 am till 4 pm.My Walkway wall hanging is going in the exhibition. It just requires a label on the back and a velcro hanging strip.
This is the original photo I took about 2 years ago and used as the subject for my hanging.
I have been working on small items for the Sales table. I made a fat quarter apron ( and forgot to take a photo ) and these 3 page felt needle cases.
It is 2 years since our last quilt show but we don't seem to have more entries. I think members have given away quilts they made as up to 2 years is a long while to keep them if they have been made for someone else. This is a different venue too from recent years. About 10 years ago we used the racecourse ( which has since been done up ) so we will see how it goes. There is lots a free parking so that's a plus and only 2 days instead of 3.
I am helping with receiving the quilts and the hanging and set up so the Thursday will be very busy for me.The rest of the jobs and time on the Friday and Saturday will be fun.
There will of course be plenty of shopping available as well as food and drink on site.
