Newsletter July 2018
Greetings from Country Dawn Quilting
Well winter is definitely here! So it's a great reason to get all those crafty projects out with a clear conscience as it's too wet and cold to do much else.
But something well worth a trip outdoors to visit is Aotearoa Quilters International Quilt Challenge display featuring 30 Natural Wonders of the World.
Sites from New Zealand featured are the Moeraki Boulders, Aoraki Mt Cook and Wai-o-Tapu in Rotorua.
Quilters in New Zealand, Japan, and France chose a photo from the 30 supplied and were challenged to interpret it using their own personal artistic quilt style. The result is an exhibition of 90 small quilts with 3 different perspectives of each place.
The exhibition is being displayed at the Reyburn House Art Gallery - just along the street from us. And they've extended the exhibition date to the 8th of July.
Opening times are from Tuesday to Friday - 10am - 4pm and Saturday and Sunday - 1pm - 4pm
