Australian Quilt Market


Wow, well I have just gotten back from this weekends Australian Quilt Market with Kennard & Kennard Fabrics and had such a wonderful time. We launched the new Bush Gum Blossoms and Taking Flight fabric Australian fabric collections with great success.

I am so blessed to be part of this amazing community of sewers and makers and fabric lovers! And I felt equally as happy to be part of the K&K family, and meet them for the first time. They all made me feel so welcome and I immediately felt part of the crew :). Tirzah, Sandra, Russell and Rodney were all delightful. I can see why this country family company have been around for such a long time and why their customers love them so much!

I met so many lovely customers who are excitedly awaiting their fabrics to arrive in early 2018. It was an honour to meet them and be part of their journey. Fabric delivery can't come soon enough for all of us!

Hope you enjoy these pictures taken at AQM, unfortunately the lighting there was not great, so it was almost impossible to get good photos sadly.. hopefully that can be fixed for next year! There is also a sweet little video to watch below 🙂

It is being held in Melbourne over the weekend of  November 25th & 26th. This year looks set to be super amazing with Tula Pink being the major guest speaker (squuuuueeee!). And well... it's also very special for me because it is the first time my fabrics will be there too!

AQM is a trade only event where you can view and buy the very latest in patchwork fabrics, quilting machines, threads,  sewing machines for both the domestic and professional user, patterns, needlework, beading and accessories, and so much more.  Australian Quilt Market has now become the largest wholesale event in the southern hemisphere! You will get to see hundreds of the best of the best in the fabric and quilting industry.

With international quilt market just over in Houston this year it is the perfect momentum to keep going with quilty heaven. I watched with much delight at all the instagram live stories (didn't quilters candy box do an amazing job!?). They were so good I actually felt like I right there travelling down the isles at International Quilt Market right beside them. Thank you ladies! I will do a round up of my favourite designers and stands soon. It was eye candy plus plus plus and definitely worth a blog post.

Australian Quilt Market - where you will find me?

You will find me with Kennard & Kennard Fabrics at Stand 54! I am hoping to be at Australian Quilt Market this year for at least one of the days, as I would love to meet everyone who has bought my fabric for their stores (thank you!) and also take a peek at all the other amazing exhibitors.  I will keep you posted on this.
