Latest news on Quilt Encounter 2020

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic currently facing Australia and after much deliberation the QE Committee has made the decision to postpone our annual retreat to October. This will now be a 5 day event from 4th to 9th October 2020 at the Grand Hotel, Glenelg.

We have made the difficult decision to ask that our fellow Victorian quilters and tutors not attend because of the COVID19 challenges that they are currently experiencing as well as the tight border restrictions in our own State. We will miss their company, but we need to ensure the well-being of all participants.

The Grand has reassured us that they have very strict protocols in place with regard to being COVID Safe. Its location has the added advantage of making it a great place to go for walks, try new cafes and restaurants and to experience classes with wonderful ocean views.

Some Tutor changes, Committee girls working on re-allocation of workshops and all participants can expect their letters and requirements lists by about 20th August. Still lots of fun and some much needed quilting comradery will be had by all participants

Take care & regards
