The Australasian Quilt Convention (AQC) is recognised as Australia’s largest dedicated quilt event. Incorporating classes and lectures with highly-skilled local and international tutors, much-anticipated social events, the opportunity to purchase unique craft products plus exhibitor workshops and exclusive quilt displays, this is Australia’s very own international quilt event. AQC brings together thousands of quilters and quilt lovers from around the world for an unforgettable experience.






The Craft & Quilt Fairs are Australasia’s premier craft events. Running exclusively with the fair in each location in Australia, the state quilt guilds’ annual exhibitions are a major visitor drawcard. The fairs provide a complete craft experience: retailing the latest craft supplies; encouraging and teaching visitors to create projects in workshops; nurturing not-for-profit groups and guilds by providing exhibition space for organisations; showcasing craft talent through inspirational displays and guest artists; and providing the ultimate platform for transactions between businesses, teachers and visitors for months to come.
