Exciting News–AMQF 2014

The wheels have been in motion for some time planning AMQF 2014 and it is now that those wheels are beginning to turn a little quicker as our plans come to fruition.  The time has come that we can now share a little of what we’ve been working on over the past 12 months and we will have regular updates to keep you informed.  We have a fabulous line up of teachers from Australia and America with some exciting classes on offer and details of these classes will be available once contracts are issued – stay tuned!
We are very pleased and excited to announce that world renowned quilter and artist Pam Holland will be featured at AMQF 2014 with a Special Exhibition of her stunning quilts.

Pam’s early career was that of a photographer, and fashion designer and this experience is evident in her quilting which she has been involved with for over 20 years.  Pam travels 10 months of the year to far flung places all over the world teaching, judging and lecturing about the art of quilting.  Her experiences in teaching and travel have been the inspiration for most of her quilts and has given her the reputation of shaping something new from the already established.  Pam draws, films and writes constantly during her travels and this forms the basic plans that she uses to create quilts when she’s at home in the studio.  She has won numerous International awards, has written several books with more to come in the near future.  Pam lives in the Adelaide Hills in South Australia with her husband, Keith, and is mother to 13 children who all live close by with their families.   Below are a few photos of Pam’s exquisite work and she is looking forward to sharing her incredible talent and techniques with a 3 day Masterclass to be held during Festival; details will be released at a later date.


If you’d like to follow Pam and see more of her incredible work then visit her blog or follow her on Facebook.

Vendor applications are now open and details can be found on the website   We have increased the area in the Vendor Mall, get in early to get your preferred spot.

The Sponsorship Packages are soon to be released and there’s something for everyone – get on board and be a part of Festival and take advantage of the many benefits you receive as a sponsor.  The support of our very generous sponsors for AMQF2012 allowed us to put on a fabulous event and it was appreciated by all who attended.  We look forward to working with our sponsors in the forthcoming year and beyond.
