Caloundra Quilters are holding their "Festival of Quilts" (14th Biennial Quilt Show) on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th July from 9am to 4pm at the Caloundra Arts Centre, 5 North Street, Caloundra (behind Caloundra Woolworths). Caloundra is situated on the beautiful Sunshine Coast, just one hour north of Brisbane. With over 100 members in the group there is sure to be an impressive display of quilts of all designs and techniques. The theme of this year's show is "A Celebration of Colour". Members are asked to expand their horizons and respond to the challenge of making a small quilt in that theme.

These quilts will be on display and visitors are invited to vote for their favourite. Members will also be conducting quilting demonstrations including "English Piecing", machine embroidery using a laptop computer and hand quilting. A lovely quilt in the colourful theme has been made by several of our very talented ladies. This, along with 2 other prizes will make up the raffle. This raffle supports local charity, "SmartPups", a not-for-profit Australian Charity organisation. Smart Pups are task-specific Assistance Dogs trained to improve the quality of life for children with Autism and Seizure related syndromes. As well as unconditional love, the dogs provide increased independence for the children and much needed help to their families.

For more information, visit their website: http://www.smartpups.org.au/ Some of our local merchants will have stalls at the Show and promise many bargains. Members also have a sales table with a variety of high quality handmade goods for purchase. Delicious homemade sandwiches and other goodies will be available. Free tea and coffee! Entry: $5.00
