Every year a passionate group of school students from our sewing community take part in the Student Textiles Awards, organised by the Tasmanian Quilt Guild.

We work with Primary, Secondary, and Year 11 & 12 students who have some sewing experience, to take their skills further and explore their interest in making and designing quilts. Their beautiful, unique creations amaze us every year. The competition is open to all students in the greater Hobart area and we are proud to have seen our students claim the top prizes each year.

We now run specific classes for students to work on their quilts in the lead up to the competition deadline. In these classes our tutors help students to nurture their creativity, have fun, be inventive, and learn technical quilt skills. If you know a student who may be interested in getting involved, please get in touch!
