Sharing Our Legacy: Australian Quilt Study Group Conference

Every couple of years the Australian Quilt Study Group holds a conference. Southern Queensland Quilt Study Group was asked to host the Conference for 2008. This small group has risen to the task & is holding the conference on the weekend before the Queensland Quilters annual Quilt Show. That is - 17th - 19th October. We invite you to join us for the Conference & stay on for the 2Q Quilt Show which starts on the Wednesday after the Conference. This is a really nice time of year in Queensland - not too hot & humid.
