The annual Craft and Quilt Fair is back in Perth for 2013. A one stop destination for craft and quilting enthusiasts offering craft supplies, displays and inspiring exhibitions, workshops, guest artists and live demonstrations – this is the biggest craft event on the West Coast!

This year’s Craft and Quilt Fair provides guests with the opportunity to take part in free workshops, exclusive Make and Take classes and our new pop up classes and two hour classes.
Highlights this year include ‘As Long as it’s a Bag’, creations by the Western Australian Fibre and Textile Association as part of a challenge to create anything... as long as it’s a bag! The wild and wonderful creations include bags made from tea bags, lolly wrappers and much more.

Also, showcasing her weird and wonderful creations for us is Loani Prior’s ‘Special-Tea’. Exhibiting the creations behind her new book ‘How Tea Cosies Changed the World,' Loani has elevated the humble tea cosy from a domestic object to a work of art. If you’re dubious that the humble tea cosy can be artistic, this is the exhibition for you!
For fans of quilting, the fair is not to be missed. On display this year is The Best of Australia quilts, the always popular QuiltWest, and the prestigious AQC quilt challenge.

The Craft and Quilt Fair will truly inspire presenting new ideas and projects, a chance to learn and interact with industry professionals or the opportunity to shop the latest supplies. So if you want to stitch it, sew it, bead it, scrap it, knit it, try it, quilt it or stamp it – you’ll simply love this event!
