Although I'm no longer an active member of the Club myself I am still close to many of the friends that I made whilst attending meetings.
During the years that I was a member I travelled to Nice, France; Philadelphia, PA; Chicago, IL; and Washington, DC to name a few.
We visited museums; cathedrals; pottery factories and art galleries, one year we even toured a Plantation in Georgia!
Wherever we went there were amazing collections of Quimper pottery to see when fellow collectors graciously opened their homes to us.
You can see some of the posts about those trips by clicking here for Savannah, 2010 and Dallas, 2009 here
In 2017 the venue for the annual meeting was a little out of the ordinary when members were invited to join an 11 day cruise, sailing from Montreal/Quebec City to Boston/New York, with post cruise visits to view collections in Connecticut and New York.
The meeting ended just yesterday and what an incredible trip that must have been, I'm so looking forward to hearing all about it from my friends.
If you'd like to know more about Quimper pottery you can visit the blog lovequimper which I managed for several years but which has sadly now closed or visit the QCI web page.
Last week we toured the Maison du Biscuit together and I teased you with a giveaway for this lovely torchon recette de macarons.
Just 10 names went into the draw and the winner is Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti
please let me have your address, Pat,
so that I can get this little sweetie off to you as soon as possible.
