The Illawarra region is located on the South Coast of NSW, just beyond Sydney, where the escarpment meets the sea, with Wollongong as the major city.
The Illawarra Quilters group was formed in 1987 with 45 members. Over the years our membership has increased to over 200.
Our first exhibition, held in 1988 has become a regular event held every two years, showcasing members’ work and raising funds to support local community institutions.
Illawarra Quilters are dedicated to fostering the art of quilt making, both traditional and contemporary, offering friendship and advice along the way. Workshops and retreats with local and international tutors are conducted throughout each year, promoting new techniques and breaking new boundaries.
