It has been nearly two weeks since I arrive home from AQC (Australasian Quilt Convention) in Melbourne. It is always a busy time leading up to the convention, cutting and bundling fabric, making kits, folding fat quarters and fat eighths and planning how to display all the goods.
It is so nice to step inside the convention building and see the familiar faces of stall holders I have met over the previous years. I always hope that I can have the stall set up in only a few hours, but so far I am yet to achieve this. I will keep trying however.
I had a really wonderful time, and it was great to catch up with so many people who all share the same love of patchwork and quilting.
If you are on my email mailing list, you will have received an email with a link to my latest newsletter. The newsletter includes my 2016 Class List. You will find a link to the newsletter here on this blog, just over on the left sidebar at the bottom item, or also on my website under Clubs and Classes.
I am really thrilled to be able to offer a class program this year. I have some great tutors in Annette Blake, who previously owned the delightful Fragrant Cottage, Margaret Mew who designs beautiful traditional quilts, Vicki Jenkin an award winning machine quilter and my friend Barb Devine. On top of classes I am also offering an antique quilt study day with quilt historian Janet O'Dell and a bus trip to see the upcoming exhibition 'Making the Australian Quilt 1800 - 1950' which is showing at the National Gallery of Victoria. I will pop back over the coming days and share more information on these upcoming classes.
