AQC was just wonderful, I caught up with so many friends – real and online friends…. Met many inspiring women and shared highlights with many of my quilting idols at the Bernina Celebration Gala dinner. (not to mention the entertainment)

A huge congratulations to Michelle Hill on being awarded the Rajah Award – I was sitting at her table and the look on her face when she realised was just priceless. A well deserved win.
