Waverley at Showcase

Like many events in the past two years, Victorian Quilters had to radically change the way Quilt Showcase was presented. In 2020 it was cancelled and in 2021 it became a virtual show.

Congratulations to Victorian Quilters and convenor Linda Steele for this remarkable show in difficult times.

As a long time supporter of Showcase Waverley Patchworkers sponsored a significant prize and many of our members entered the quilt show. We were delighted to receive the following letter from Julie Adamson who won Best Original Design. Julie is well known at Waverley having been a guest speaker and taught a wonderful class in silk appliqué.

Dear President, committee and members, firstly my apologies for taking so long in sending my thanks for your generous sponsorship of Showcase.I was honoured to be awarded “Best original design” at the Victorian Quilters Showcase late last year.  Waverley Patchworkers were the major sponsor for this award.
I am absolutely thrilled with the $500 and will be putting together an extensive sewing shopping list!
Your ongoing support of Victorian Quilters is greatly appreciated, especially given these challenging times.
I have attached an image of the quilt but hope to be able to bring the quilt to show the members in the near future and to thank you all personally.  Take care.
Yours faithfully

Julie Adamson
