Until next time,
PS. Next up will be Deb Louie. Stay Tuned!
Registrations will open tomorrow morning, April 16th 2012 at 9.00am CST.
Please note that AMQF is for everyone that uses a sewing machine of any type – there are classes for all types of quilting.
Change of Teacher for Art & Stitch
The Art & Stitch Classes were to have been taught by Loes vander Heidjen from The Netherlands. Unfortunately Loes & Theo are unable to travel to Australia at this time and the Art & Stitch classes will now be taught by Susan Smith (USA). Susan’s classes vary a little from what was previously on offer but you won’t be disappointed!
We’d like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank Loes & Theo for their valued contribution to AMQF and look forward to a continued association with them.
Art & Stitch will be the next classes to be reviewed – stay tuned because this program is quite simply phenomenal and will turn those that are artistically challenged into “Rembrandts”.
All those registering for a class must pay a Registration Fee of $60.00.
If you choose the Registration Fee option you will receive a Laptop Style Conference Bag containing a few lovely surprises and a 4 day pass into the Vendor Mall & Quilt Show.
However, there is another option which offers fantastic value for money, this is the Festival Package which is listed below.
Instead of paying the Registration Fee you may choose the Festival Package – cost $100.00. This includes the $60.00 registration fee PLUS all of the following;
The Festival Package is valued at over $300.00.
Until next time,
Sharon & Tracey
It is with regret that we have to advise all our subscribers that due to unforeseen circumstances Jane Monk is unable to teach at AMQF 2012. We apologise for any inconvenience or disappointment that this will cause to any prospective students and we wish Jane all the very best for the future. Tracey and I are working on filling this void and will do our very best to come up with classes equally as inspirational as Jane’s.
Zentangle classes will also be taught by the very talented Lee Vause and you may find what you are looking for in the classes that Lee is offering.
If you’d like to Volunteer during festival there is now a form on the website available. Please check your class times carefully before completing the form to ensure that any classes you are wishing to take don’t conflict with the times you’d like to volunteer.
Alzheimer’s Benefit Quilt Challenge
The first quilt taking part in our Quilt Challenge was received yesterday and was accompanied by the most beautiful poignant story. There really are some incredible people living amongst us and if you haven’t yet registered for this Challenge there is still time. It is a most worthwhile cause and we sincerely want to raise a great amount to donate to Alzheimer’s Australia. Please support this initiative!
Shontelle Stanyer will be posting reviews on the teachers and classes that are available at AMQF. She has been researching the teachers thoroughly and will give you an independent view and a different perspective on what you can expect from your class experience.
Shontelle’s first review will be on Cindy Needham – stay tuned!
Till next time,
Sharon & Tracey
