Sharon & I would like to thank everyone that attended as a student, a teacher, a vendor, a visitor, a sponsor and ESPECIALLY all those that also volunteered & assisted in so many ways. We have had some amazing feedback from so many & truly the strongest comments are in appreciation of having so many volunteers. Without you it would not have happened as smoothly as it did!
The weather was absolutely perfect, the venue & surrounds were amazing as well.
We still have much work to do, but we have slowed from 500mph to only 100mph now vbg.
AMQ Festival dates for next time are:
28th September – 1st October 2012
Keep these free & put them in your diaries! We have some great plans already which we will unveil when confirmed.
I have tonight finally found some time to get some photos of the winning quilts on the website. One is missing, but I will get that tomorrow. You can view them here
Best of Show was the lovely Rachelle Denneny with Fancy Flutterbys
Rachelle won a Brother NV400 sewing machine donated by Sue’s Sewing World. She said it was the first sewing machine she has ever won! Next special event for Rachelle is when she will be flown to Houston to receive a top 7 award at that show for another quilt. Congratulations from all of us Rachelle – we are so very proud of you!
There will be merchandise available on the website once I get to put it up there for those that missed out. Limited stock only.
Also the Festival Photo CD will be able to be purchased/ordered once they are all on there.
All those that have preordered will receive their CD in the mail by mid December. Just have to give the photographer time to complete exams & then complete the huge job of editing & sorting 1000’s of photos into sections to go on the CD. Then they all have to be reproduced, labeled & packaged for everyone. There will be many extra shots of the vendor mall, classrooms and the banquet dinner.
Will keep on blogging to keep everyone informed on the progress of AMQ Festival 2012
until next time….
Tracey & Sharon
