Yay, our fabulous class registration book is now out and on its way to all registrants. A big thank you to all involved as this is a massive undertaking. From choosing the tutors to collecting and proofing all of the class descriptions and needs lists to ensuring everything prints correctly and is on the website for you to view – thank you in particular to Helen and her tutors team and Andrea and her website team. Firecrest have done an amazing job on keeping the website up to date, and Graphic Press have made an awesome job of printing the book.
Now you have time to study and decide what classes and lectures you would like to take before returning your choices by 15th August 2014 to ensure you get allocations based on your registration number. After this date the classes will be allocated on the date received basis, depending on vacancies.
Tickets to various events are limited to the numbers suitable for the venues they are being held in. For our Opening Night and Awards Evening, Hazel Gamec from Wanganui is our guest speaker. Hazel has been a judge for previous symposia and has many humorous tales to tell. Then the prizes will be given out for the quilts entered in the exhibition. We’d love it if as many people as possible were there to received their prizes.
The Gala Dinner is being held at the Awapuni Racecourse with a lovely buffet style dinner and some awesome entertainment that will WOW you. Our Finale on Wednesday night will wind down our festivities and pass on to Christchurch for 2017. At this finale you will receive a snack box and a drink and we will have more wonderful entertainment for you. We’d love to see you at these events, but remember tickets are limited.
