This six-week extravaganza celebrates the artistry of quilting.

Discover the intricate patchwork designs, meticulously stitched by talented local quilters, each piece a labour of love and creativity.

Meryl Miller of the Port Stephens Community Arts Centre told News Of The Area, “From bed quilts to throws, table runners to postcards, explore a diverse range of quilted masterpieces, each one a testament to the quilters’ dedication and craftsmanship.

“Don’t miss this opportunity to immerse yourself in the vibrant world of quilting and witness the magic of textile art come to life.”

Two quilts will be offered via raffle.

Until mid-April the centre will showcase an ‘Easter Delight Arts and Craft Exhibition’, where creativity takes centre stage in a vibrant showcase of artistic expression.

“This colourful exhibition features intricate crafts and joyful creations, from whimsical egg designs to charming, themed artworks,” Meryl said.

“Join us for a delightful fusion of artistry and Easter spirit, promising an immersive experience for all to enjoy and celebrate the season of renewal and creativity.”
