AMQF Information book now available!

It has been frantic both at Sharon’s house & mine these past few weeks! It will only get busier now that we have only 6 weeks to go!

With amendments & additions happening all the time, we have finally got our AMQF Information book available for everyone to download and share with your non-internet friends. This has been a lot of work and hopefully will not change now, except for extra advertising up until Festival itself. It includes class descriptions, quilt show information, vendor listing & much more…

We would be thrilled if everyone was willing to download & print this book and provide it to your local guilds, local shops and friends that do not have internet access. We will also be printing these to provide to our local shops here in Adelaide & for those that have requested them so far, but to spread the word we need everyone’s help?

Class change:

We would also like to advise you that the following class has been changed to a 2 hr class.

Very own Virtuoso with Helen Stubbings

Victorian Virtuoso

2 hrs

Say you cannot design? Learn how to use your photographs of architecture all around you to make your very own wholecloth or quilting designs – you don’t have to be able to draw, just trace and flip.

In this short class Helen will demonstrate her design method showing step by step how you can use your own photos to ‘cheat’ and get your own package of classic design elements. You will then use Helen’s element package to design your own 20” wholecloth design. Helen will then demonstrate her simple Colourqué® technique so that you can continue to colour your piece after the class.

Please visit the website to view further information & the requirements list.

Travel information

We have been advised that it would be approx $30 by taxi from the airport to Endeavour College at Mawson Lakes. There are also buses & trains that will deliver you there as well. There is more information & maps on the website on how to get to Mawson Lakes that is located only 12kms north of the city. There will be quite a number of you that are flying in on various days. We encourage you to use the comments section on this post on our blog to post when you might be arriving to determine if you can meet up with others to share a taxi out to Mawson Lakes!

Until next time…

Tracey & Sharon
