CQ News March 2010

I am delighted to finally be able to announce some fantastic news for ALL machine quilters here in Australia & New Zealand.

I have been spending some serious time & late nights in planning an event to benefit many.

I have partnered with Sharon Parkinson, of Patchwork on Parade to present the inaugural:

Australian Machine Quilting Festival

1st –4th October, 2010

Mawson Lakes, Adelaide, SA

featuring International Teachers

– Pam Clarke and Helen Baczynski

and an amazing array of National teachers from Australia.

Vendor mall

Quilt Show

Banquet dinner

The festival will centre around the stunning facilities of Endeavour College, Mawson Lakes. They are situated 12 kilometres from the Adelaide GPO on the northern side of Adelaide.

We are catering for all machine quilters that own either a Long arm, Mid arm AND/or domestic sewing machines.

So come and join us in our new venture to grow and learn about Machine Quilting!

The festival website is still in its initial stages and the best way to stay informed on updates, classes, teacher news & vendor list will be to JOIN UP to the Festival newsletter.

will get you to the most exciting event on the calendar this year!!

I am thrilled to also let you know that AMQA Inc is going to be coordinating the quilt show section of festival. New categories have been formulated to encourage you to enter your quilts. Prizes, ribbons and the chance to show your talents will abound. More information will be forwarded as it happens via the festival newsletter and also in AMQA’s Continuous Lines member newsletter.

Constantine Quilts will be a featured vendor along with A1 Quilting Machines, Intelliquilter and many more…

We hope that this event will encourage quilters to come along and try out all the different brands of longarm, midarm and domestic sewing machines to determine which will suit them the best. As well as to learn new techniques and skills to further their repertoire of quilting choices.


The Intelliquilter is now available for Prodigy & Proto quilting machines....

If anyone is even contemplating purchasing an A1 Longarm quilting machine or an IntelliQuilter computerised system that will go on  'any' brand longarm machine, then don't hesitate to contact me!! Prices are subject to exchange rates at all times.

We will have another large shipment of A1 machines arriving again in mid April…
