HAVE you always had an interest in quilts and rugs?

Do you love that special quilt you got as a present when you were little?

Then why not visit the fourth Glen Aplin Quilt and Craft Show, which is all about pretty quilts and warm rugs.

The show will kick off on Friday at 11am and run till Sunday 2pm.

Doors open on Friday from 11am-4pm, Saturday from 10am-4pm and Sunday from 10am-2pm.

The event will take place at the Glen Aplin Memorial Hall to celebrate 95 years of Queensland Country Women's Association community service.

The memorial hall, situated at 14 Foster St, will be home to a large display of home-made quilts and rugs.

Working demonstrations by special guest artisans Julie Spencer and Margaret Hopkins will be a new feature of the show.

Mrs Spencer and Mrs Hopkins are qualified QCWA handicraft teachers.

The cafe on-site will be open throughout the three-day event serving home-style refreshments.

Raffles, lucky door, novelties and stalls including scissor sharpening services will be on-site.

Stanthorpe CWA president Rae Baudouin said the organisers were sure everyone would enjoy a visit to view the display of quilts, rugs and crafts.

Another innovation to the program is the competitive sections.

All types of quilts and levels of experience and skill are covered by the various classes in the show.

There will be a novice section for beginner quilt makers.

Anyone with a new quilt may enter and be part of the fun.

This is an opportunity to show your work and perhaps win some of the lovely prizes donated by sponsors.

The Glen Aplin Quilt and Craft Show is passionate about antique quilts and hopes to make history with their quilts and yours.

With the use of more robust fabrics on much improved domestic sewing machines, they hope some of today's quilts will survive the next 100 years.

Schedules are available at Mickey Mae in Stanthorpe, on Facebook, or email Marilyn at

Proceeds will go to local and state crisis care funds.
