Highlights of the quiltwestlog-1
show include the WAQA Contemporary Quilters’ annual challenge – this year’s theme is ‘Maps’ – and 25 quilts from Perth’s sister city, Kagoshima, Japan.

A glorious display of works by guest judge, Kathy Doughty will also be on show together with members’ quilts made from some of her workshops.

The WAQA Hexagon Group will have a display and Sit N Sew demonstrations will be happening in the QuiltWest area at the fair and you can try some stitching too!
