Class Registrations will go live on the website on July 12th, how exciting is that??? We will also have a Program of Events available in PDF form for download direct from the website at this time. Our plan is to send a hard copy of the Program to various groups so that we can get the information to as many people as possible. If you are in a sewing group, or know of anyone that may be interested it would be a great help if you could share this information with them.
Program of Events The Program of Events is the basis for the Show Program that will be included in your Registration Bags and also available at "Festival". We would like to offer everyone the opportunity to advertise in the program, it is an excellent chance to target a specific audience with your new products and/or services. You can supply an advert in colour for the online show program, however, the printed program will be in Black & White, please keep this in mind when designing your advertisement; the program will be A4 in size. The cost of advertising in the Program is as follows;
- Single line listing $30
- 1/4 Page $75
- 1/2 Page $150
- Full Page $250
The advertisement must be supplied in a completed format, ie PDF - NO artwork will be undertaken by AMQF. Please register your interest for advertising, by 31st July, via email.
The Registration Bag is a lovely laptop style conference bag and will be given to every registered student. There is an advertising option available to you for the price of $220 (inc GST) to have your logo printed on the bags. There is only room for 10 logos to be printed on the bag and at this stage 3 people have taken advantage of this offer, 7 available . This is a great way to advertise as the bags will be carried by students throughout "Festival" and in use long after. Please contact Sharon for further information.
You may wish to have a flyer, business card and/or discount voucher added to the bag to reach students to encourage them to shop with you. The cost of this option is $50 (inc GST) and you would need to provide us with the inclusions no later than 10th September.
Another opportunity you may like to consider is to include product in the Registration Bags and/or Attendee Packages. This can be organised at no cost to you except to supply sufficient product to be included in either every Registration Bag or just the Attendee Packages. This is ideal for those that have products with their business name on them or sample sized items that are useful and also advertise your products. Sample spools of thread, rulers, patterns, tape measures, gadgets etc would be a fantastic addition to the bags. We have three pattern designers that have taken advantage of this opportunity and are donating a pattern, each valued around $15, to be included in every Attendee Package.
The Attendee Package was released on May 28th and the response has been incredible. These packages include;
- Registration Fee
- Entry to Quilt Show & Vendor Mall (4 days)
- Conference Bag including pad, pen, magazines, vouchers patterns and much, much more
- AMQF Commemorative Badge
- 3 metres of wide backing fabric
- Listing in Show Catalogue
Cost is $100.00 (inc GST) , value is over $230.00. There are still packages available for purchase, to register your interest please email
