The Australian Machine Quilting Festival was originally created by Tracey Browning of Constantine Quilts and Sharon Parkinson of Patchwork on Parade
Our inaugural Festival was held at Endeavour College, Mawson Lakes, SA in September 2010.
AMQF is a consumer show. Attendance has increased for each event thus far with great expectations for the fourth event. Festival will be again held at the Adelaide Convention Centre but we will be moving to Halls F & G for 2016 to take advantage of the magnificent ambience and views of the River Torrens and parklands and have the classrooms in closer proximity to vendors and quilt show.
Our focus will continue to be machine quilting with amazing teachers from Overseas & Nationally to enhance the learning experience for all genres of machines. We continue to attract more domestic machine owners to classes & to come shopping at Festival where we can highlight all the machines & accessories that marry together. The exposure given to Machine Embroidery in quilts was quite outstanding and we will continue to encourage this trend.
The word is definitely spreading that AMQ Festival is going to yet again be a fantastic event for vendors and attendees alike!
