The Clarence Town School of Arts Hall will be brimming with patchwork, quilting and hand made delights this weekend for the annual Quiltarama.
This is the 11th year the Dungog-Clarence Town CWA has hosted the event which grows every year with both stallholders and people coming to visit increasing.
It is one of the branch’s major fundraisers for the year.
“There will be around 50 quilts alone on display and last year we had around 300 people attend,” said the Dungog-Clarence Town CWA Treasurer Wendy Hogan..
“The CWA members cafe will be open for tea and coffee, mixed sandwiches and small cakes and slices so it’s a lovely day out,” said Ms Hogan.
“You can be tempted to do a little shopping too with the wonderful stall holders having an array of items for sale including patchwork, quilting and sewing supplies, beautiful handmade gifts and other crafts.”
The event attracts people from across the region and beyond with such a large display.
“It was very popular last year and we are hoping for even bigger and better this year.” said Ms Howard.
There is a vote for the most popular quilt or quilted item and the first prize in the raffle is a quilted throw with applique.
The event is held from Saturday August 26 from 10 am – 4 pm and Sunday August 27 from 10 am – 3 pm.
It is now so large it spills in to the Clarence Town Senior Citizens Day Care Centre which is directly behind the hall.
Entry $5 and covers admission to both venues.
