Heritage City Quilt and Craft Extravaganza 2020
What it's all about
The fun, the excitement
The Heritage City Quilt and Craft Extravaganza in Maryborough is an annual weekend of craft hosted by the Rotary Club of Maryborough–Sunrise. A premiere regional event for crafters, it draws crafters and suppliers from across south-east Queensland for displays, demonstrations and workshops, providing opportunities to learn new crafts, techniques, or to sit and admire the works of others. Finished handicrafts sellers provide opportunity to buy supplies, something for someone special, or to start your Christmas shopping! Try your luck at the roving raffles across the weekend and top off your visit to City Hall at their Event Café.
The Show is held on the same weekend as the City’s iconic Mary Poppins Festival and challenges quilters to tell a story through their work.
Most wondrous are the Quilts that adorn the City Hall, whispering their stories to those who take the time to stand and listen. These quilts are reminders that treasured arts of our mothers and grandmothers are alive and well in this Heritage City. Reminders that we too can be wrapped in a swathe of hand-sewn love and magic as the winter days shorten and the winds arrive to carry that all-famous nanny in to the City!
