Nonie Fisher talk at the 2014 QSGA Seminar on 6th July

For many quilters in Sydney, Nonie Fisher played an important role in starting us on our quilting journey. She was one of the owners of "The Quilting Bee" in Gordon and via her classes introduced us to the various patchwork, applique and quilting techniques, as well as to the history of quilting.

As both a teacher and designer of quilt patterns with an historical emphasis, Nonie has been a leader in developing patchwork and quilting in Australia. Although she now lives in Victoria, Nonie has agreed to talk to us at the Seminar on 6 July 2014 at the Australian National Maritime Museum in Sydney.


Nonie's talk is titled "Retrospective Recollections - a Personal Journey". She will talk about: "my journey, and I will bring as many of my quilts (including some old ones relevant to my story) with me. It is a journey that includes my involvement in groups, The Quilters' Guild of NSW from its commencement, 'The Quilting Bee' and making quilts for my loved ones."

  4. Dear Nonie , thanks for your lovely answer. I have been so busy at the end of the year that I couldn't answer you straight away. And now that I have the time and can´t do it because, for some reason, I can find your mail. I work as a realtor so I am always from here to there. I want to send you the photos of my quilts. So please send me again your letter. By email. kocaburra@hotmail.com. Love Pilar
