15th ANNUAL MEMBER'S EXHIBITION
26/27 November 2022

 

Unfortunately, our Annual Quilt Exhibitions for 2020 and 2021 had to be cancelled due to Covid-19 and the restrictions on numbers that we had to adhere to.

We will be holding our 2022 exhibition, as usual, on the last full weekend in November which is for our members to exhibit their quilts or textile arts. Featuring displays of handmade quilts, patchwork and textiles, it has become one of the signature events for Bungendore and draws visitors from across the state, the nation and overseas.

 

The exhibition includes a members' challenge, raffle quilt, quilt block hunt and lucky door prizes. We have a sales table providing good quality, handmade craft which makes for ideal gifts for Christmas. There are many local cafes nearby and a number of interesting shops, including the award-winning Bungendore Wood Works Gallery, in which to browse and spend an hour or two (or even more!). Come and visit Bungendore and enjoy all it has to offer.

Our 15th Exhibition in 2022 will be held on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th November. Save the date and come along either Saturday or Sunday to see what our members have been up to during the three years!

If you are interested in becoming a member and getting involved please visit our membership page.

Tickets are $2.00 each and are available until the end of the Annual Quilt Exhibition on the Sunday. The raffle is drawn on the Monday after the quilt show and winners are notified by phone and published in the Regional Independent. Please note that this quilt is still a work in progress - the photo is from the pattern but in similar colours.

challenge - a day on the farm

Each year, during our Annual Quilt Exhibition, Bungendore Quilters holds a Challenge for our members and the winners are chosen by a Viewer's Choice. The entries are displayed for our visitors to see on black screens or tables.

This year, the Challenge is to make an item with the theme A Day on the Farm. This item could be anything from a cushion, tea-towel, door stopper or small quilt - anything that captures your imagination.

guest exhibitor

 

Each year the Bungendore Quilt Exhibition invites a guest exhibitor or group to exhibit their art on the stage in the Bungendore War Memorial Hall. In 2019 our guest exhibitor was award-winning quilter and owner of the Braidwood Quilt Store, Bronwyn Hill.

 

These exhibitors focus on one particular area of the textile arts or in the case of groups, a variety of textile arts. Our guest exhibitor gives a short introduction to themselves and their craft during the opening of the exhibition on the Friday evening before the weekend gets underway.​

12" QUILT BLOCKS

 

In 2015 our members made over fifty 12" blocks which were displayed in The Village Square. They looked fantastic. This is an ongoing project and each year we will add more and more blocks to be used during the Quilt Exhibition weekend. It is makes a wonderful and interesting display of blocks so that non-quilters and those new to quilting will be able to identify different quilt blocks.
