We are thrilled to welcome Wonderfil Specialty Threads, Canada as a SILVER SPONSOR. Please ensure you show your appreciation by visiting them in the vendor mall over Festival.



We also welcome Janome Australia educator to Festival - Julie Sallai.

She will be demonstrating the new Janome Horizon – A Quilter’s Dream on the Quick Quarters Spotlight Demonstrations stage in the Endeavour Centre where the quilt show & vendor mall are located.  This wil be everyday at 1.30pm


You can see this machine up close at the Country Chix booth in the vendor mall.


We have planned some great Quick Quarter demonstrations but there is still room for more. If you have a product to share & promote then please download the application form & return it ASAP if you want to be included in the Show Program! We go to print this week so this would be a priority!

Festival is looking like the place to be! We now have quite a few groups organising get togethers at various times. If you would like this information to go out in our newsletter then please email me your details & it can be done!

Don’t forget you can download the AMQ Festival Information book & share it with your friends that are not online.

Until next time…

Tracey & Sharon
