Technology at its best!

Yesterday we were thrilled to let you all know about our MAJOR SPONSOR – Handi Quilter!

Today we have now created a Facebook Page as well… we would love for you all to visit and ‘like’ us. Leave a comment or make suggestions as well?

All the tools at our disposal are many when online. We have numerous jobs to get done & they prove invaluable to assist us in this great adventure to create a fantastic festival for you all to attend & participate in.

We have recently changed our newsletter service to Mailchimp so if you happen to get a duplicate message in the next few days please disregard this as we are having a couple of initial teething problems. Hopefully we will have it sorted soon & all will be perfect!

We also have some give-aways for you! Thanks to Universal Magazines we have 10 of their gorgeous 2012 diaries to give away.


These are in the newsagents for $19.95 each!

So the first 10 people from Australia to make a comment on our blog as well as list AMQ Festival blog in their blogrolls on their own blogs will be sent a beautifaul diary. We definitely welcome everybody to list our blog on yours at any time of course…

We will contact the first 10 people after confirming your blogs to get your mailing addresses.

Until next time…

Tracey & Sharon
