Airing of the Quilts and Back to Steiglitz Reunion 2017



Airing of the Quilts and the Back to Steiglitz Reunion on Saturday 7 October 2017 was another great success and simply wonderful  - a community event filled with colour, laughter and hundreds of people.

The little township sparkled, the weather was perfect for a gentle Airing, the sun shone, the quilts flapped softly and wonderful conversations were conducted around busy hands stitching. The visitors strolled around slowly, stopping for a cuppa and a slice at Sugg's Cottage, then wandering to enjoy and talk about the handiwork being done beneath the trees. We are sure many went away inspired to begin a quilt or take up an abandoned piece again.

Thanks to all who came along with quilts and shared knowledge and quilting stories.

As usual, delicious country cooking & drinks were available at Sugg’s Blacksmiths Cottage too.

Quilts ... and how they depict the history of women 


The Back to Steiglitz Association also held its annual reunion of past residents and descendants.

Those returning to the township to gather with old friends and others met at St Pauls Church for a cuppa and light refreshments.

Also on offer -  great country cooking, roving musicians, an assortment of quilt-related stalls, and a breath-taking bush setting.

Let’s keep alive this wonderful little town!
