Craft and Quilt Fair October 2020 - High Tea in the Garden

High Tea in the Garden -  is the theme for our feature space at the Craft and Quilt Fair 2020 – an exciting, immersive display of contemporary mostly three-dimensional embroidery.

Dates have been rescheduled to Thursday 29 October to Sunday 1 November 2020.

Think;
      Tables with tablecloths/centres set with crockery; 
      Food and vases of flowers; 
      Chairs with cushions; 
      Window boxes and vertical gardens of plants and flowers; 
      All created in textiles with embroidery, life-sized and three-dimensional.

Backdrop: Artificial grass floorcovering; windows on long wall with window boxes; vertical gardens at short ends; round tables with two chairs at each.

Members of the Embroiderers' Guild NSW - we invite you to participate in this exciting exhibition. Please read the Brief carefully before beginning stitching, because we’ll need certain numbers of particular items to create the scene, you’ll need to consult with the organisers before you begin.
