Class submissions are open!

Attention all teachers! Now is the time to submit your wonderful classes for consideration for AMQF 2014.

AMQ Festival aims to provide quality educational opportunities & inspiration to all machine quilters in Australia & around the world. We work hard to provide a balanced schedule covering all levels of experience and genres of machine quilting.

The structure of our schedule is based on 2 hour sessions that can be run individually or concurrently. That means if you submit a 6 hour class then you will have the choice of taking 2 x 1/2 hour breaks every 2 hours or working through with a larger break in the middle.

2014 will see the commencement of 5 days of classes to allow participants to choose from fewer classes in each time slot - effectively allowing them to experience a greater variety of learning with more time to shop & socialize. Classes will commence Thursday 2nd October & finish on Monday 6th October. Vendor Mall & Quilt Show will be open from Friday evening through to Monday afternoon.

The types of classes may include, but not be limited to the following:


Lecture/Demo -(with a Longarm to demo on)

Hands on -Sit down (Domestic)

Hands on -Sit down longarm (HQ Sweet sixteen)




Applications to submit classes online are available by clicking here.

Applications will close on 31st August, so don’t delay in getting your submissions in for consideration. Contracts will be sent mid October for successful applicants & their classes.

Please advise your favourite teachers of this opportunity by forwarding this newsletter onto them & encouraging them to participate!

Until next time…

Tracey & Sharon
