Almost 9 months have passed since we held the first Australian Machine Quilting Festival, a little bit of time was used to catch our breath but that was shortlived. We have been working away in the background putting plans in place for AMQF 2012 and one of the first things we had to do was find a new venue.
After many hours of searching and many kilometres of driving we are really happy to announce that AMQF 2012 will be held at the Adelaide Convention Centre, North Terrace, Adelaide. Since AMQF 2010 we have had many approaches from vendors, students and sponsors and it became apparent very early that we'd need a larger venue to meet our requirements.
We are also very proud and excited to announce that Ricky Tims will be attending AMQF 2012! Ricky will be holding a seminar all day on Friday 28th September and then performing at the Banquet Dinner on Saturday 29th September. If you have any spare time and would like to see Ricky "live" go to Youtube and put his name in the search engine, his music is amazing never mind his quilting! Ricky Tims is an incredibly talented quilter and musician, he is inspiring, fun and best of all you'll have a chance to meet him in Australia.
Expressions of interest will be sought from teachers for AMQF2012 and this information will be on the website, hopefully, by the end of the week. If you think you have something to offer the machine quilting fraternity we'd love to see your proposal.
Sponsor and Vendor information will be available during July. If you are interested in sponsoring or would like to have a booth then please send an email and further information will be sent to you as soon as it is available.
Until next time, Keep on quilting!
