The community is invited to view the masterpiece designs by quilters at the Camden Haven Quilt Show. 

All proceeds from the exhibition will go to the Camden Haven SES for renovations on the members’ operations room. 

The event is at the Laurieton School of Arts Hall on September 29 and September 30 from 10am until 4pm. The exhibition is also open on Monday, October 1 from 10am until 2pm. 

Camden Haven Quilters president Anne Holley said about 50 quilts will be on display at the event. 

There will also be a variety of items for sale and a raffle where a beautiful quilt can be won. 

Anne said she enjoys the charitable nature of the group and has formed close friendships.

“A lot of these women come from the generation where they made their own clothes,” she said. 

“Quilting is another form of self expression.” 

In the past the group has made contributions to charities including Ronald McDonald House, Soldier On Australia and Days for Girls. 

Anne said the amount of time which goes into making a quilt is dependent on the design. 

“Some are more intricate than others,” she said. 

Anne describes quilting as ‘addictive’ and a hobby which can challenge the brain.

The quilters meet each week on Wednesday from 9am until 1pm and on Thursday from 9am until 2pm. 

The group is open to new members. 

“We welcome anyone who wants to come along and have a go,” Anne said.
