Are you getting ready

for the NOTYQ Quilt Show?  Here's a message from our lovely Christine.


North of the Yarra Quilters Exhibition

5th and 6th October, 2013

It’s less than 12 months until our next exhibition! I hope everyone is planning what they will be

entering in the show.

And what’s a NOTY exhibition without a challenge!

The 2013 Exhibition Challenge is “Covered Journal/Notebook”.

The journal/notebook is to be A5 size (approx 6” x 8½“) or smaller.

Again we have made it easy for you with no fabric, ric rac or anything else for you to use. You

can use whatever materials you like. The sky’s the limit! 

If you have any queries, just ask one of the Show Committee members.
