6 days left for class submissions!

We have some exciting classes already submitted for 2014 Festival that I’m sure are going to tempt everyone & probably cause quite a dilemma on exactly which ones you are going to be able to fit in…in fact we are having a dilemma in choosing them & fitting them all in!

So this is simply a last reminder to teachers that are considering being a part of this exciting event, to get your class submissions in by the 31st August 2013.

A huge CONGRATULATIONS

also goes to Karen Terren's for her recent ribbons at the Victorian Quilter’s Showcase. We received a delightful thank you note when she received AMQ Festival’s donated prize for this category & supplied us with this fantastic photo of her prize winning quilt!

Karen wrote:

“I was thrilled to receive several prizes for my quilt “Double Cream”.  The quilt was awarded first place in the Long Arm Quilters category – a category which was sponsored by you.  Double Cream also won the Matilda’s Own Longarm Quilting Award and also came Runner Up Best of Show.  I will attach a photo of my quilt, however, it is quite difficult to photograph.

Thank you again for your sponsorship and the wonderful prize.

I hope to enter another quilt next year and look forward to your continued support – it is certainly much appreciated.”

We hope to see it entered into the AMQA Show in 2014 so we can have a close up look to appreciate all the work you put into this one!

Vendor Applications are now open!

2014 Festival has introduced a floorplan so that vendors can choose their preferred position in the vendor mall. Applications for booths are now open online. A paid deposit will guarantee your location for you to promote & sell your products to our eager Festival participants.

Until next time… happy quilting

Tracey & Sharon
