Otamatea Quilters' Show
October 22 to November 21
The Kauri Museum is pleased to again host the Otamatea Quilters’ Group annual exhibition. Included this year are a range of quilts; from entirely hand worked to machine stitched, embroidered and embellished, and from contemporary to traditional.
Community quilts are at the heart of the exhibition, with all materials donated by the quilters. The Otamatea Quilters choose an organisation to donate quilts to, and over the past 4 years, have made quilts for STAND, the Children’s Health Camp in Whangarei, and the Plunket Society. Another Otamatea Quilters project was to provide the newly opened Dementia unit in Maungaturoto with quilts for all the beds.
This year of number of small quilts have been made to support families with newborn or premature babies. The St John “Woolly Express” program is also being supported with quilts going to families in need.
