Conference & AGM 2016

Region 13 welcomed members to the 2016 Conference & AGM 2016 on 15 - 17  April 2016 at Venue Cymru, Y Promenade, Llandudno, LL30 1BB.

The theme for the weekend was ‘Victoriana’ and the Conference Challenges were as follows:

  • The Sue Ridgewell Challenge - open to all members of The Quilters’ Guild of the British Isles and the theme is ‘Extravaganza’
  • The Young Quilter’s Challenge - ‘Alice in Wonderland’
  • A challenge for Guild members from Region 13 - A4 sized piece ‘A postcard from…..’

As part of our fundraising we ran a needle case tombola - based on our theme ‘Victoriana’. 

A very huge thank you is due to the Region 13 team for putting on such a splendid event on all counts so tirelessly.  To say that the whole event was a great success can be judged a great understatement when looking at the feedback we have received.

'The weekend was wonderful, all the speakers were fantastic, I learned some new things, the choir were wonderful.'

'It was one of the best, great lectures and meeting up with friends from up and down the country.'

'Region 13 did an excellent job and the Gala dinner was the best one I've been to.'

'Met so many lovely people and great to talk quilting with them.'

'Indigo sampler with Magi Relph was just one highlight of many.'

'A great sense of community!'

'I've really loved being here in Llandudno with so many enthusiastic ladies.'

'I have had a wonderful weekend at my first conference, many thanks to everyone and especially those in Region 13 who worked so hard to make it such a great and superbly organised event."

'Brilliant from start to finish'
