The biennial NZ quilt symposium is being held in Christchurch this year. It will run for 6 days and includes classes, lectures, exhibitions and merchants mall. You will find all details on our website www.quiltsymposium2017.org.nz.
There are still places available in some classes and plenty of room at the lectures. The Peek into Paradise merchants mall has an amazing range of products for sale.
Our exhibitions are over 4 venues:
St Andrews College (where classes are being held) – Tutors, Hoffman and Aotearoa Quilters exhibitions and silent auction
The Great Hall (Arts Centre) – the main exhibition
The new RSA – all the challenges including Postcards from the Front
The Piano – all visiting national and international exhibitions
there will be 3 late nights so plenty of time to view.
A big thank you to Bernina NZ who are once again NZ Quilters major sponsor
