Here are some common questions about symposium.
1.1 Why should I pre-register? Our pre-registration system benefits both you and the organisers.
1.2 Can I use my email address to pre-register my friend? Yes you can, provided you enter different name and address. You can only purchase one pre-registration at a time.
1.3 Does GST apply? Yes, we are GST registered and our GST number is 133-306-072.
1.4 Does pre-registration give me free access to any events? No. You will be able to purchase tickets to the events when you register for classes. Tickets will also be available at the venue to purchase during symposium. Entry to the exhibition is complimentary if you register for a class.
1.5 Do I need to pre-register to visit the Merchant Mall? No. Access to the Merchant Mall is free to all.
1.6 What is the refund policy for pre-registration? The pre-registration fee is non refundable. If symposium needs to be moved (e.g. from 2022 to 2023) your pre-registration and priority number will be transferred to the new date.
2.1 When will registration for classes open? We intend to publish a downloadable booklet of classes in early May 2022.
2.2 What is the refund and cancellation policy?
3.1 Can Challenge quilts be exhibited prior to Symposium 2022? No
3.2 Do you need to be pre-registered to enter the Quilts in the exhibition? Yes, everyone needs to pre-register before they can enter quilts in the exhibition or enrol for classes. (You don’t need to enrol for classes to enter a quilt in the exhibition, but you do need to pre-register.)
3.3. What are the categories for the Open Exhibition? When you submit an entry you will be asked to categorise your quilt – traditional, contemporary and modern or art. Sometimes this can be hard to determine as quilt style is more a continuum than distinct categories. To assist you with deciding on the category, we have described the definitions that will apply for this exhibition. The exhibition committee reserves the right to change the category of any submitted quilt.
4.1 What happens to any profits from Quilt Symposium 2022? We are a not-for-profit, and any surplus will be used to support quilting and quilters.
