“Needles, Knots and Threads” is an Exhibition of Embroidery and Quilting by members of the Ballarat Branch of the Embroiderers Guild Victoria.
Some 450 items will be on display showcasing, promoting and encouraging the art of embroidery. Traditional and modern techniques in Surface Stitchery, Smocking, Beading, Counted Thread, Blackwork, Lace making, Crewel, Patchwork and Quilting are used to create traditional, contemporary and creative items ranging from the smallest pin cushion to the largest quilts.
Demonstrations of various techniques will be held during the Exhibition. A special feature will be the Challenge, “To Knot or Not”, where members use the technique of their choice to interpret a design based on a panel in the ceiling of St Patrick’s Hall. A major raffle will be held over the course of the Exhibition with smaller raffles drawn daily.
Articles made by members will be for sale on the Boutique and refreshments will be provided by Webbcona C.W.A.
