Registrations are open! click here for link

Have you ever wondered why there is such a rush to register your interest in attending a Quilt Symposium?

To make things as fair as possible the Committee will date stamp your registration as it is received. A sequential number will then be allocated to each person in that order. Later, when it comes to allocating classes, the class bookings will be dealt with in numerical order. The lower your number the better your chance of getting into the class you want. So don’t delay filling out the forms and sending them in.
