Australasian Quilt Convention, Melbourne

11 of our members have travelled to Melbourne to attend the AQC. Some are madly attending workshops every day whilst others are taking a leisurely stroll through the streets of Melbourne - Oh, and then coming to the exhibition, of course. We attended a presentation from John Flynn, Confessions of a Non-traditional Quilter last night, which was very entertaining. He brought along 2 suitcases full of quilts to show us and talked about each one.

Today was the first day of the exhibition and delegates we allowed to look through the exhibition and shops 1 1/2 hours before the public were admitted. This will happen again tomorrow so we'll be able to see then what we missed today. There is so much to see and learn here with the outstanding tutors and shops, you must put it in your calendar for next year. The dates are April 12th to 15th, 2012!
