Braidwood Quilt Event 2018 - winners and images

Winner of Jill McLeod

Thank You - The Braidwood Quilters Inc., would like to thank all those who entered the Indoor and/or Outdoor Competition.

The opening was a success and the number of people who visited the indoor competition was higher than recent years. Our efforts to hang the quilts on both days was a success according to many visitors and shopkeepers.
