Upcoming QCI Journal and a RAK

The next issue of the QCI Journal will be winging its way to all QCI members very soon, but just to whet your appetite here is a sneak preview of some of the highlights included this time.

I know you’re all waiting to read about the details of the upcoming Annual Meeting, which you may know by now is going to be held in Dallas, TX, and sure enough co - organisers Susan & Sarah have covered the topic from A to Z, everything you need to know about attending the meeting is here.

Two very interesting articles not to be missed are: a review by Antoine Maigne of his new book entitled “Terres Sacrees” and also an interview with artist Bel Delcourt by PhilippeThealet.

There are more tales from the fascinating world of Fakes and Forgeries, this time dealing with faienceries such as Malicorne, Desvres, Nevers, Moustier etc.

QCI members Trudi and Ros talk about their recent meeting on New Zealand’s South Island.

Menus are celebrated in the featured form article and the featured collection is a mother and daughter duo, Ann & Maggie both keen collectors, talk about their collections.

The QCI is celebrating its 10th Birthday this year, authors Sandra Bondhus and Adela Meadows take a look back over 10 years of the Quimper Club.

And news just in.............

Our webmaster Judy sent me the Weekly Stats Report for 11 – 17 May and I’m very happy to tell you that last week we had 166 visitors, our highest number since we started counting 11 weeks ago.
87 of you came to visit on Thursday which coincidentally just happened to be the day the Journal update email went out to all QCI members, now the trick is to keep you coming back.

RAK on the QCI Blog.........................
Watch out for our 50th blog post and leave a comment.
24 hours later I will randomly choose the winner, who will receive a grab bag of faience related goodies, generously donated by me.


  1. And the Brits think we talk funny! What's a RAK? Susan Cox

  2. Susan C has asked what is a RAK, as far as I'm aware it originated in the US and stands for "random act of kindness".
