"How do you describe the
AGM? Maybe the best way is to start at the beginning. The first time a
group of us got together was for a Saturday afternoon where we had
lunch, a chance to see each other´s work, and a slide presentation about
the English Guild´s First International Festival of Quilling. Each year
the AGM continues to grow and just keeps getting better. This year,
Rhonda Cole (and her husband Don) hosted the event in beautiful San
Diego, CA and what an outstanding job they did. We followed the blown-up
photos of outstanding quilling through the lobby and down to the
registration area. We started registration at noon on Friday afternoon,
where we all received quilled name tags, programs and a bag of goodies.
There were lots of bags and greetings as many of the attendees moved
right into the Balboa room and started sharing.
There were lots of classes to choose from including teaching
techniques, miniature quilling and watercolors, quilling and stamping,
calligraphy, onion holder angels, matting and framing, husking and
origami to name a few."
