COLOUR and creativity will abound in picturesque surrounds, with visitors welcome to enjoy a quilt hanging and open garden at Patchwork Maze, Glen Alvie, on Saturday, November 27.

This year’s event doubles as a 30th birthday celebration for Jeanette Clark’s Patchwork Maze business, which teaches patchwork and quilting and includes a shop selling creative supplies.

The show will feature a display of students’ work as well as Jeanette’s own quilting, with the annual event returning after a one-year COVID-enforced absence.

“The CWA branches are going to have stalls with homemade goodies for sale and there’ll be working displays of patchwork and quilting and machine embroidery,” Jeanette said.

As well as all the activity in the garden, people can check out the offerings in the shop.

These include sewing machines, quilting machines, overlockers, and everything required for patchwork and haberdashery.

There will be some specials in-store.

The show’s $10 admission fee includes Devonshire Tea.

Jeanette loves the creativity of quilting, something she shares with her students during her classes, which run between Wednesday and Saturday each week.

“Quilting’s like an art; you do a design and then you add to it,” she said.

A healthy turnout is expected for the quilt hanging and open garden, with the most recent event drawing around 250 people.

Jeanette is crossing her fingers for a sunny day as she looks forward to welcoming visitors to her expansive garden.
