Sydney Craft and Quilt show

Paddy and I headed to Sydney in June for the craft show at Darling Harbour. We enjoyed an afternoon of shopping, lunch and browsing on Thursday afternoon and then went to the show on Friday. There were some lovely stalls and lots of amazing quilts to see. We especially enjoyed and learnt lots from Kelli from Cutting Cloth. She did demonstrations of raw edge applique and quilting on her stall. Must have a go!!! I bought the gloves she uses and some special fusible web so will definitely try it soon.
It was lovely as always to catch up with Anni and Pete Downs on the Hatched and Patched stall. It is such an inspiring stall! Very special to catch up with Chooky who was working on the stall as well.

 Loved the Bebe bold stall too. So nice to say hi to Jane and Cally.
 There was a special display of the interesting work of Segolaine Schweitzer. It is very naive but very effective.

 There was also a great display of children's clothing through the ages.

 Then there were the quilts! There were so many. Sadly the lighting wasn't really good but I still managed to take some pictures of some of them. Amazing work and all so varied.

 We both loved this beautiful one designed by Yoko Saito. It has been in a Quiltmania magazine.

 This one by Wendy Williams was amazing too.
