The Applique Guild of Australia


A group of us have decided to launch The Applique Guild of Australia.  These include Margaret Mew, Jennifer Murray, Alison Gardner, Mary Hitchens, Janet O’Dell, Margaret Parkinson and myself.

Many people do not have the luxury of being able to attend a sit & sew session, classes or visit a patchwork shop.  The Guild wants to create a forum where a member from central Western Australia, outback Queensland, suburbia or a small country town can be involved with like-minded people, connect with others and continue to learn as you pursue an existing passion for appliqué or are a “newbie” to this style of needlework.

The Applique Guild of Australia aims to provide information, tutorials on differing techniques, interesting articles and interviews, a diary date listing of upcoming applique-related events and help to connect people on-line.  Join us to learn and enjoy together what we are so passionate about – applique in all its forms, whether it is modern, art, pictorial, naïve, 1930’s style, traditional or antique reproduction

We will basically be an on-line group with quarterly newsletters.

The Applique Guild of Australia will be launched on Thursday 25 July 2013 at the Melbourne Craft and Quilt Show.  I will be there on Friday and Sunday so please come by and say hello.

We will also be holding our Inaugural Applique Day on Saturday 5 October 2013 at Holy Cross Retreat Centre, 207 Serpells Road, Templestowe between 10am and 4pm.  There will be shops in attendance and a guest speaker.

For more information please check out our website at:

Welcome and thank you for visiting

This is a very exciting venture for us and we hope that we see many of you at the Show as well as at our Inaugural day.  If you want to know more please don’t hesitate to contact me.
