Waikato Quilt and Craft Fair

We had a great four days at the Waikato Quilt and Craft Fair.
 We set up on Wednesday – can you believe it – it took us 5 hours!!!!!

This (the quilt in the centre) was the biggest seller for us at the Show which was really 
exciting. I think it is now my all time favourite quilt. I wonder how long that thought 
will last - quite a while I suspect.

Another of our Block of the Month programmes is Magnolia Blossoms. This was  design that I picked up on a trip to Japan a few years ago.

And you will have seen this big one as I was making it - it is the1800s Antique Sampler 
designed by Sue Daley. And you can see my Jo Morton quilt beside it and just around the 
corner. 1800s Reproduction fabrics are my favourite after the Japanese Taupe ranges.

And here is Tea in Provence on a casual coffee table at the end of the stall.

If you haven't been to a Quilt and Craft Fair you really should try to get to one next year.
There will be two next year - one in Palmerston North in February and the other in Hamilton in September. See you there - or hopefully before then in the shop or at Calico Christmas - now called Auckland Festival of Quilts - at Albany Stadium over the first weekend in November.


  1. What great photos Robyn. Your shop set out beautifully as usual. Loving the santa

  2. Looks great, glad it was a success for you. I'm with Elizabeth, loving the look of the Santa!

  3. The Santa is a ready-made that we picked up recently at a Gift Fair and really just could not leave him behind. We also got a grey/silver version. They are Advent Calendars. And we sold heaps at the Waikato Show. In fact we sold out but more are coming - yesh.
