CREATIVE types are encouraged to visit O’Connell next week for the Quilts in the Shearing Shed exhibition.
The event will showcase more than 120 handmade quilts, along with a range of bags and other patchwork items.
Exhibition organiser and quilter Brigitte Giblin is behind the creative show and she encouraged people to come along to check out the wide range of items.
“We have nearly 120 quilts on display, two pop-up quilting shops, tables of handmade items including quilts for sale,” she said.
“There will be beautiful handmade items for sale, fabric packs and general sewing items.
“The end of April is wintry in O’Connell and it’s the perfect time to check out the feast of warm quilts on display in the shearing shed.”
