November 11th Quilt Study Group of NSW talk on Coverlets by Linda Butcher at The Glover Cottages.

The last QSG of NSW event for the year will be a talk at The Glover Cottages on Saturday the 11th of November.

Since coverlets have appeared for the first time in the 2017 Sydney Quilt Show, we have asked noted quilt teacher and maker of coverlets, Linda Butcher, to talk to us about the history of this popular bed and wall covering and to show us examples of her work, including her recent prize winning 'By Night and By Day' coverlet below. 

Linda hopes to bring along some other quilt teachers' coverlets and there will be a Mary Jane Hannaford coverlet to see up close. 

Please bring along your own coverlets for show and tell – especially any that you have entered into quilt shows.

Please encourage everyone you know who is interested in quilting and quilt history to come along. The Glover Cottages (124 Kent St, Sydney) is a beautiful light-filled venue for the talks and it is an easy walk from either Wynyard or Circular Quay train stations. Entry is $5 for Quilt NSW Guild members and $10 for non-Guild members. Afternoon tea is provided and the talks start at 2pm. Check the Guild’s website, blog or the latest Template Newsletter issue for more details.
