    I am just wondering if there are any Aussies out there who are also members of an Australian Quilting Forum and if so, which one?

    Hi,
    there is a Yahoo Group called Scquilters i.e. Southern Cross Quilters. I belong to that but it doesn't cover nearly as much information as this board does and the topics are not as diverse.
    I don't think I can post a link here but just google it and you'll find it.

    If anyone knows of any other group, I'd like to hear about it too!!

    I love this site too, There are always so may new thing to learn from quilters all over the world. I would love the time to join my local guild but I don't think I would learn as much as I have here from an all Aussie group.
    Mind you I get really jealous when I hear about all the wonderful finds at op shops and garage sales, we just don't have that kind of thing happen here in Australia :mrgreen:

    There is the Melbourne Modern Quilters Guild, which has a forum, but it is not very active. There is one at Craft Lovers, and one at SEWN.net, a site I keep hearing about but can never access.
    I will post any others I hear about.

    It's always interesting to hear how things are done - what is popular - and how people respond - different regions of the country and the world offer so much insight!

    I haven't seen this before so I don't know if it's new or not but it seems to be an Australian Etsy-type website for crafters:

    https://www.hand-made.com.au/

    EDIT: (I misread the topic title: I thought it was a general thread for Aussie quilters until I read the posts.)
