The Australian Quilter’s Association owns and runs an extensive and up-to-date library of books, magazines, kits, equipment, CD’s and DVD’s. We have over 1600 items to borrow on a fully computerised system.
The Library is open on meeting days (1st Monday of the month) from 10.15am – 11.00am and again from
12.00pm – 12.30pm.
The Library is also open at our Wednesday Night meeting (3rd Wednesday of the month) from 7.30pm – 8.00 pm.
You may borrow 6 books and 4 magazines at each meeting, with the understanding that they would be returned at the next session. If you are unable to attend the next meet meeting, you can notify our Librarian.
We have many magazines – Quilter’s Newsletter (USA), Tsushin (Japan), Magic Patchwork (Europe), Piecework, Threads, Textile Fibre Forum and DVD’s.
Occasionally there is a ‘sale table’ of old/retired/donated books and magazines to browse through. When members purchase these books, the funds go back into the Library for further purchases.
Our Library is run by wonderful volunteers, who manage the inventory and add to our large range of books regularly.

MILLEFIORI QUILTS 1
This Quiltmania book was first published in 2011 and contains 183 pages including 19 quilts.
A soft cover, beautiful design, together with high quality photography, makes this book a pleasure to read, and a perfect addition to the coffee table. Willyne Hammerstien gives an interesting account of her life experiences, travels and quilt making journey.
French and English language instructions and well-drawn templates are included. The projects are primarily designed for those who love the millefiori style, where colour is key. The quilts have all been created for hand piecing but can be adapted for paper piecing.
Millefiori 1,2 and 3 are available to borrow from the AQA Library.
