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 3rd to 8th October 2020 at Immanuel College.

Fortunately nearly all of our amazing tutors will be joining us and we expect most of the scheduled workshops will still go ahead as published in our QE Brochure. There will be some changes and all the registered participants will be advised in due course.

Although a 5 day event (not 6 days this year) the Committee is still planning a fabulous, fun filled time of comaraderie and quality stitching days in the spring. We are optimistically looking forward to some normality returning to our lives and sharing this special event with our quilting friends.

Take care & regards
Kerryn Brand (Convenor)
Chris O’Brien (Guild President)
and the Quilt Encounter Committee girls.
