Theme Reveal: Carousel of Quilts

The 2024 Waikato Quilt Symposium is a multi-cultural, multi-coloured quilt fest with a carnival twist. Held at Cambridge High School from Wednesday 2nd to Sunday 6th October, this jam-packed event is one you don’t want to miss! We are delighted to be partnering with BERNINA who will facilitate an international tutor and supply machines for use in workshops.
