2QAQ – Art Quilters

2QAQ is the Queensland Quilters Art Quilters and through this special interest group, we wish to promote art quilts by providing a variety of experiences and inspiration through demonstrations, guest speakers, challenges and projects.

We eagerly share our knowledge and skills and all members of Queensland Quilters are welcome to come along to our gatherings. Contact us and we will let you know what’s happening and what to bring along to our next meeting. Visitors are welcome to attend one meeting or gathering before becoming an individual member of Qld Quilters Inc.

Bring along your sewing & any tools/equipment you need. Tea and coffee is provided, BYO cup.

Join us – you’ll have fun with like-minded quilters and artists.

We feel that the new venue will bring many positive changes that will better suit the needs of our members and allow us to better facilitate our meetings both now and into the future.  Benefits include:-

·         Easier parking and access to building

·         Remains a central location from North, South, East and West of Brisbane

·         Larger room to allow for additional members, even with distancing as per Covid regulations

·         Room is well lit and has good natural lighting from windows and doors

·         Reverse cycle air conditioning for year round comfort

·         Adjoining outdoor paved area with shade sail for demonstrations or social gathering

·         Kitchen and toilet facilities within the building, just off meeting room

·         Access to full 2Q library will be available at meetings

·         Consistency of venue with other 2Q group meetings

Recent feedback from members has been that they have enjoyed the social aspect of the meetings as well as our usual show and tell and workshops or information sessions.  With that in mind we will be trialling a new format for the afternoon, as follows:-

ROOM OPENS:          12 NOON We invite you to BYO lunch, catch up with friends and browse the library prior to the meeting

MEETING STARTS:     1PM   Notices, show and tell, workshops etc

ROOM CLOSES:         4PM
