Did you know that the Quimper Club is celebrating it's 10th Birthday this year?
The Premiere issue of the newsletter came out in the summer of 1999 and in the letter from the Editors, Katie Wiggins and Lucy Williams had this to say:
"Welcome to the USA Quimper Club! We would like to thank all of you for your help in establishing the first national club dedicated to the enjoyment of Quimper faience".
The front cover also features details of the first meeting which was to be held at the Santa Monica Antique Market on September 25th.
Highlights of the meeting were to include presentations by Adela Meadows and Millicent Mali and appraisals by Sandra Bondhus AND book signings by all five of the American Quimper book authors.
So, were you there at that first meeting?
Tell us about your experiences there & share with us what it was like to be in at the beginning of this wonderful Club of ours.
