Registrations Open in 3 weeks!

We apologise for our absence in the blog. We have been extremely  busy behind the scenes getting our class catalogue ready to go to  print, the website ready to test for registrations & a myriad of other  things! Sharon has been very busy ensuring that everyone will be thrilled with their registration packages along with a huge amount of other work that is required before all this can happen.

Part of Sharon’s workload has been working with business’s in our industry to provide maximum marketing opportunities to them in  exchange for sponsorship.

We are thrilled to announce our newest Classroom sponsors! Their  classrooms will be named after them in all publications & announcements leading up to and throughout festival itself.

Yes, we are on track to open registrations to all classes in only 3  weeks time! Boy has time flown to get to this point…

The date has been amended slightly to 9am on Monday April 16th  to allow for AQC attendees to be home to register! Thank you to those that let us know of the conflict in timing.

Similar to the first AMQ Festival there will be a compulsory registration fee payable that will cover as many classes as you  choose to register for.

Class Registration fee is $60.00. (This is a $110.00 value)
This fee will be payable by all students nominating for classes. This fee not only helps towards teachers fees and expenses, staff time, supplies and equipment but also offers benefits to students. These benefits include 4 days admission into the show and vendor mall, and
also a fabulous tote bag complete with goodies including magazines from Meander Publishing, Universal Magazines & Express Publications.

There will also be an optional Registration Package (that includes the registration fee) that you can choose to purchase with some amazing extras included, that is fantastic value! All shops/businesses are also invited to offer discount vouchers/coupons/samples to be included in these packages to further enhance our students shopping experience & to promote your products.

The Registration Package is $100.00 and currently boasts a value of $230.00. The Registration Package is optional & includes the Registration fee with added benefits of a Commemorative Badge, at least 2 full patterns, 2.5m of quality Charles Parsons wide backing fabric, thread, a Quilt Tote, Business card folder, discount vouchers, a listing in the show program and a few other surprises…

All classes are currently listed with each teacher’s profile on the  teachers page on the website.

Stay tuned for more news soon….

Until next time.
