Conference & AGM 2019


Region 10's five counties are pleased and proud to welcome members to the Jubilee Conference & AGM at the University of Nottingham. This opportunity to celebrate The Guild's 40th Anniversary takes place at the aptly named Jubilee Campus.

The conference runs from Friday 10 May until Sunday 12 May 2019.  

The booking form is available here.  A paper version of the booking form and brochure was included with the autumn edition of The Quilter.  The deadline for the early bird discount is 15 February 2019 and the final closing date for bookings is  20 March 2019.  So plenty of time but remember that places on the popular workshops go fast!  

There will of course be a great list of speakers and traders, both local and national, as well as some wonderful workshops. The successful carousel of 2018 will be double the fun with sessions on both Friday and Saturday afternoons.
