However, I had a very good reason to attend this particular AGM - as I received my certificate for completing the Quilters Guild Judging Course. It was nice to get a certificate after all the work and study involved in the course.
And, very conveniently there was direct flights from Shannon Airport to East Midlands Airport, meaning that I could get there easily.
The AGM itself was very well organised and quick with computer presentations for each speaker. All the new Quilt Judges received their judging certificates during the AGM.
After lunch I'd signed for a Concourse (which to be honest I wasn't sure what was involved). As it turned out this concourse, was a variety of different demo's and talks. The demos which were run on a strict timetable of 25mins, after which you'd move to a different table. It was very enjoyable and I went to 4 demos.

There was lots of cool graffiti around the city, so took a few photos of those.
My flight back to Shannon was at 6am, so I had a very early start on Monday, but it did mean that I made it into work early..
