Darling Harbour Craft and Quilt Fair June 2011
Wow, what a successful Show for the Guild and especially YTFG.
The YTFG Committee was so pleased with the visitors' positive responses to our 2010 Feature Display that we resolved to again pay for a seperate stand to the Guild one in 2011 so that we'd have room to display the children's work to best advantage.
We launched The Convenors' Colourwheel Challenge late last year and set the deadline for mid June hoping that we'd receive lots of brightly worked panels for the Darling Harbour display. Well, we were delighted and amazed at the number of wonderful panels when they started arriving at Guild Headquarters from the Clubs. We had 81 panels in total, and every colour allocated was represented. Concord West, Dubbo, Lismore, Milton/Ulladulla, North District, Parkes and Wagga Wagga clubs all sent in their work for us to display. We had intended to swap out the panels, but so many children wanted to keep their own work that we decided to return it to them after the display. Photos of selected blocks will be used on the Guild website YTFG section in the near future. All of the blocks have now been returned to the Clubs along with Participation Certificates for their makers.
Here is the overall display, information about the other major piece shown will be in the next post.
