Hi everyone, I am just heading off to Brisbane for the Quilt Study Group of Australia Seminar. I hope to see many of you there. Annette Gero is staying for the Quilt and Craft Fair in Brisbane to promote her new book so if you are planning on attending, call in and say hello. She will have a few quilts on display including two reproduction quilts made from patterns in her book -The Fabric of Society.
Details of the next meeting are below:-Floor Talk - Dianne Finnegan at her exhibition - Ground Saturday 29th November at 2.00 pm.
Dianne Finnegan - quilts Meredith Peach - basketry and paintings.
The theme of the exhibition is Ground Cover, the layering of textiles that make up quilts as well as the layering of the environment. Dianne Finnegan has made quilts for nearly thirty years and along the way was President of the Quilters Guild during the Bicentenary, written books, traveled around Australia and internationally teaching, fundraising and meeting wonderful people. Her quilts are process driven and are inspried by two sources, the rough geometry of the landscape and the possibilities of the cloth. The exhibition will be held at Primrose Park Art Gallery Address: Matora Lane, Primrose Park (off Young Street), Cremorne
Telephone: 9936 8200 Website: www.primrose-park.com.au and will open on Friday, 28th November - December 5th.
Our floor talk will be on Saturday November 29th at 2 pm. This will be the last meeting for the year and hopefully as many people as possible can come. Directions for getting to Primrose Park: Car: Approx 10 min from city. Take the Ernest st exit off Warringah Expressway if you are coming from the city or anywhere south. From Manly or Northern Beaches, use the Spit Junction Cremorne Junction bypass route that brings you to Gerard St and Belgrave St and turn right at Young St in Cremorne. If you are coming from the north or west, you will need to travel via Crows Nest and preferably Ernest St, turning left into Young. If it is your first time visiting Primrose Park, check your directory first. Its a bit tricky but there is plenty of parking once you get there. See you then, Karen Fail Convenor.
