One could argue that this weekend is like Christmas for Heather Anderson.

As one of the organisers of the biannual Singleton Quiltfest exhibition she admitted she was stoked to see so many quilt enthusiasts enter the host venue this morning on the opening day.

"This is two years of hard work for most of us so it really is special," she told the Singleton Argus.

THE EXHIBITION: Visitors can cast their eyes over the work this Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

"Each year I give the girls a challenge and this year I gave them a panel and they each had to choose a panel and create a quilt using that.

"I've been here for almost 30 years and its always a privilege to be here because they are an amazing bunch of ladies."

Singleton Quilters Inc meet each Tuesday and Thursday as well as one Saturday per month.

OPENING DAY: Many enthusiasts were out early this morning for the opening of the biannual event.
