Hobbysew are a proud sponsor of the 2012 St Ives Show’s Patchwork and Quilting Category!
Come and join us on Saturday & Sunday May 19 & 20!
Below is a short message from Christine, the St Ives Show Co-ordinator.
Northern Suburbs A&H Society Inc are delighted to have Hobbysew as the sponsor of our Patchwork and/or Quilting category for the 2012 Annual St Ives Show.
We are proud to offer quilters and other crafts the opportunity to exhibit their work to the public and compete for ribbons and prizes. Hobbysew have provided a gift voucher and assortment of products – value $35 – for our Patchwork and/or Quilting categories and a major prize of gift voucher and product – value $200. Well worth winning. Schedules can be downloaded from our website: www.stivesshow.com.au
I believe quilts have such energy. They are about history, family, community, patience and beauty and can sometimes be life changing for those who stitch them.
Some modern quilts depict events and/or disasters which stir emotion. So much so that all who see them, quilters or not; enjoy, discuss and are in awe of them. I am really looking forward to displaying your entries and I know the visitors to the show, especially the younger generation, will have many questions about them.
Since early in the 20th Century St Ives Show has had a proud history. In the early years it was held just prior to the Royal Easter Show. (see our website for History of Show) Now, however, it is one of the first to be held in the show cycle with the Royal being held in April and St Ives Show in May.
Judging the categories will be Judges from the NSW Guilds and Associations together with teachers of the craft and members of District A51 Inner Wheel Clubs (Sydney to Wollongong), who as a Community Service are assisting the St Ives Show this year. Hobbysew have also been kind enough to provide a Judge from their skilled teachers for which we are very grateful.
So get those entries in as soon as you can and I will see you at the show.
St Ives Show Co-ordinator
