It is with great sadness and heavy hearts we need to inform you that our
Quilt Exhibition and Handmade Market will not be held this year.
After years of trying to get our event listed with Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers
(multiple meetings, phone calls, emails), we have become very disillusioned with the criteria used to be included on the Carnival website (this is the main forum for visitors and locals to look for events being held throughout the Carnival week).
This event originated through our passion for our local area, and to showcase the broad spectrum of talent we have within our community (and we have LOTS!).
The Quilters Angel has devoted an enormous amount of time and effort to co-ordinate this inspiring event. It is such a shame that our vision for promoting the creative talent in our area can not continue with the Quilt Exhibition and Handmade Market.
To those who have supported us along the way... THANK YOU
(especially the Toowoomba Information Centre, Hampton Information Centre, Exhibition Garden Flyer Committee, our small but fantastic band of helpers, and of course, the Exhibitors and community supporters).
Please stay tuned though, as The Quilters Angel is always working on new and exciting ways to help promote handmade and support creatives in our wonderful community.
On Angels Wings,
Marion, Steph and Sue
