The Country Yard would like to invite you to come with us to the Auckland Festival of Quilts from 4th – 6th November!
This wonderful event is one of the biggest quilt festivals in the whole of New Zealand, and is a great chance for passionate quilters to share their quilted works of art with the general public.
Here are some of the winning quilts from 2015
Aside from Christmas, this is the biggest event of the year for us, and we spend many happy hours of creativity putting together a veritable treasure trove to take with us. Santa’s elves have nothing on the ladies at The Country Yard! If you love quilts and quilting, then you need to get along to this festival.
