PPKeep the onsite guide as a handy reference for later – it has the contact details of the exhibitors

As well as producing amazing ‘thread paintings’, Cheryl is also a talented creator of wearable art and a painter. In addition to FAFME Cheryl’s loves are fabric, fine tailoring, designing, colour, dreams, experimenting, teaching and animals. She lives with a full size zebra ‘Zoe’ in her converted horse stable studio-home in downtown Adelaide and never wears anything she hasn’t made! Meet Cheryl at the fair and see her working on her next amazing piece.

Christchurch Christchurch Christchurch no squares allowed! ...or rectangles for that matter! And that is precisely what makes these quilts so interesting. That, and the fact there are so many intriguing designs all created with a common fabric. The annual New Zealand Hoffman Challenge is organised by Needle ‘n Thread, in Geraldine. It is open to all quilters no matter where they live and the entries must contain the nominated fabric for that year; must be no larger than one metre square; must not be square or rectangular and must contain a recognisable amount of the challenge fabric. See these works and more at the Hoffman Challenge at the fair.

Affection by Jan Beale, Christchurch Quilters


Christchurch Christchurch Christchurch visit ‘blue heaven’ in quilts! See Aotearoa Quilters’ latest challenge – ‘blue’.

Blue Morpho by Sonya Prchal

Blue is the favourite colour of many....the various shades of this colour have so many meanings – strength, trust, authority, calmness and infinity are just few. Aotearoa Quilters threw out a challenge to all quilters to create a 12in square quilt based on the colour blue. There are four prizes awarded with a total value of $300. The Blue Challenge attracted lots of entries, proving very popular and the wonderful interpretations on this theme make it a mustsee. Plus all the works on display are for sale. See the results of this open quilt competition in a gorgeous parade of blue at the fair.
