We are also very pleased to have a NEW class from Narelle Morris. Her first one sold out pretty quickly & this one is perfect for beginners but will also provide many tips & tricks for owners as well.

********************************

There are many jobs to do when organising an event such as Festival for the quilters of Australia & New Zealand. One of the biggest & hardest ones is spreading the word to all quilters & sewing enthusiasts that we have so many classes & events to share! We have invested much in print media advertising with advertisements & articles across many magazine titles & newspapers as well.
Our Facebook page is used to provide quick information & share details of our wonderful teachers & what they are achieving so that you can get to know them better as well.
This newsletter is yet another service we provide to ensure you know what is happening so that you don’t miss out on these opportunities that we provide only every 2 years.
So now I’m asking all our subscribers to also help spread the word to your fellow quilters by forwarding our newsletters on to your friends & even downloading an A5 flyer to include in messages to your own networks. A successful Festival will ensure the next one continues & can grow & provide even more opportunities for us all to learn & share.
Please download our Festival flyer to share from here.

Our Bernina Classroom is proving popular with Bernina 350 sewing machines being provided by Otto & Penny’s Sewing Centre again this year.
There is only ONE seat left in Bethanne Nemesh – Nemeshing: the freehand feather flourish hands on class and only FIVE seats left in her Devil in the Details hands on class.

The Bernina Q20 longarm sitdown classes are also very popular with 4 of the 6 hands on classes now full with Chris O’Brien

Bernina is our Class Catalogue sponsor this year & we are VERY pleased to have them supporting Festival yet again….

BERNINA Longarm Quilting Machines

are the fulfillment of a vision that was 120 years in the making. A long history of innovation blended with a wealth of quilting expertise has been brought together in these Longarm quilting machines that are meeting the demands of discriminating quilters everywhere.



See, touch, and fall in love with one at AMQ Festival this year and if you purchase one by December 31 2016, you could even win a Trip for 2 to Switzerland!

Happy Quilting
Tracey
