Canberra Craft & Quilt Fair

This year’s Canberra Craft & Quilt Fair, August 6 to 9 at Exhibition Park In Canberra, will be an inspiring hub of creativity covering wearable art, embroidery, knitting, paper craft, textile art, vintage fashion and a stunning array of quilts! With impressive displays, workshops and craft products all on offer at Australia’s most popular craft event, visitors will be spoilt for choice.

The exhibition of quilts is second to none, with the best from two highly anticipated national quilt challenges, ‘True Blue’ and the ‘Lest We Forget Quilt Challenge – 100 years, 100 quilts’, plus a stunning display of more than 160 local works presented by members of Canberra Quilters Inc. and 20 quilts by Canberra Modern Quilt Guild.

Papercraft expert and guest artist, Kerrie Gurney will show visitors in her 30 minute Make ‘N’ Take class how an original and handmade card can be a work of art, utilising embellishments and techniques such as die cutting, embossing and mixed media.

Visitors can also be inspired to begin preparations for a handmade Christmas early at the enchanting Christmas area featuring inspiring free Christmas workshops with creative ideas on how to make this year’s Christmas a handmade affair.

For those wanting to stock up on all the latest craft supplies, tools and gadgets, the Fair will be bursting at the seams with specialty retailers from all over Australia.
