Christchurch Quilt Symposium 2017

Capital Quilters was very well represented at our national five day Quilt Symposium in Christchurch.  Our members had quilts in the juried exhibitions, and enjoyed attending classes with national and international tutors. Some of our members were even tutors themselves.

The Opening Ceremony and prize giving was held at the Cardboard Cathedral (above).  It was a thrill to see Capital Quilters winning awards for their quilts.  Congratulations to all of the following winners.
