Apron Competition 2017

Welcome to the 2017 Ballarat Apron Festival Competition!

Connecting with the Ballarat Heritage Weekend, the Ballarat Apron Festival will showcase a gorgeous display of vintage aprons and memorabilia alongside some fabulous modern and vintage inspired aprons entered in the apron making competition.

We now invite you to download the 2017 Ballarat Apron Festival Competition Form, and make and submit up to 3 aprons in any one of categories. There is no limit on the materials you use, but the apron must be able to be worn and undertake the basic function of an apron, which is to protect the wearer’s clothes.

• Entries close on Thursday 11 May 2017 (entry forms must be attached to your Apron)
• Exhibition opens to the public on Saturday 27 May 2017 – 10am to 5pm

  1. Please tell me if the entry fee for senior discount applies for a senior card for Western Australia. Thank you

    • Hello Rosemary, thanks so much for your enquiry. We do welcome entries from far and wide, and so your seniors card from WA will be happily accepted. We look forward to seeing what you create!

  2. Do you need vintage aprons for your display this year? One of my colleagues in the Embroiderers Guild of Vic. had her apron collection on display at your festival last year or the year before I think…One of your committee invited me to submit some of mine to display, but I didn’t hear any more from her, so I assumed she had organised another collection instead. I have several hundred Australian hand embroidered aprons dating between about 1940 to 1960. They can be seen on my Aprons blog here.http://patrasembroideredaprons.blogspot.com.au/
    If you are interested in displaying some, please email me to make arrangements.
