Caloundra Arts Centre Association is pleased to present another exciting and unique exhibition celebrating the 40th anniversary of the association. Caloundra Quilters, Embroiderers and Textile & Fibre Art groups are combining to bring this amazing Exhibition with 3 differing variations on an "Alice in Wonderland" theme. Quilters are having a "Mad Quilters' Tea Party".

The Quilting group run a highly regarded biennial Quilt Show and this talent and ability will continue to be on display at this new and exciting event. Members are now busy making some quirky quilted goods to create a visual language in fabric. Varied demonstrations and other activities will be a feature. Caloundra Quilters are also celebrating their 30th birthday and the evening group "Night Owls", are also celebrating their 20th birthday. These milestones are sure to be part of the exhibition. Embroiderers are "Wild about Embroidery".

Caloundra Embroiderers also have an Exhibition every 5 years to promote, preserve and encourage all aspects of embroidery and to keep the traditional forms of embroidery alive. Embroiderers are now embracing newer exciting forms of stitching with a love of the fine arts and especially that of embroidery. Throughout time, people of all backgrounds and ethnic diversity have wanted to beautify their clothes and homes and embroidery provides an excellent way to achieve this. Textile and Fibre Art are all about "Textile Nonsense".

Textile and fibre artists are inspired and creative, using many highly versatile and varied techniques to design individual pieces. These artists feel free to experiment and explore different textiles, fabrics and assorted organic materials, including wood, plants, seeds and shells. Waste and recycled materials are also often used and different colours and textures are an integral feature of textile art. Felt is one of the most versatile textiles used and many artists are attracted to this soft material because of its' impact on the senses. It is malleable, durable and can transform and be manipulated into all sorts of shapes.

The Exhibition with displays, demonstrations and sales will be run over 2 days, Saturday 10th September and Sunday 11th September from 9am – 4pm. Refreshments will be available and entry is free.
