FAQs about the classes

Why are the classes in packages?

AQC classes are part of a convention and therefore are available to Convention Delegates only. Class packages include social events, catering and a number of inclusions. If you only want to attend AQC as a casual visitor, there are plenty of options – attend social events, or just buy a ticket to the Expo and Quilt Show – there is a full program of free workshops and short classes to choose from. The Expo program will be released in March, 2019.

Can I pay by cheque?

You can pay by cheque, but you will need to make a phone booking. Please have several class preferences chosen. Your class place cannot be confirmed until your payment is received.

What do I need to bring?

Some classes include a kit of all or some materials required in the class. The class description includes mention of any kit/materials fee. If there is a kit, you will need to pay the kit fee directly to the tutor. Most classes will require the student to bring specific supplies with them. The requirements list for each class are posted here within each class description.

Do I need to bring a sewing machine?

In classes where machines are required, sponsor companies will provide them so you do not have to bring your own. A technical assistant will be available in class to help you. You may bring your own machine if you choose but no technical assistance will be available.
