A visit to the QCI web Maggie Bryant

Today I’m leading a guided tour of the QCI website, so if you’ve always wanted to know more about the QCI but were afraid to ask, this is the place to be.
If you are already a QCI Member you don’t really need a guide as web master Judy has set up the site to be very easy to self navigate but stick with me, you might learn something you didn’t know before.
What can you expect when you go to

On the Home page you’ll be welcomed into the world of Quimper pottery and invited to browse the web site to discover more about faïence and the Club but please watch the “Le Petit Breton” slideshow before you navigate away from the Home page.
9 links have been created to take you to different areas of the site, 8 are open to the public but you’ll need a special password to access the Members Only page.

Click on the first link and you’ll find a potted history of the Club and a Porquier Beau faience tour.

You can also click straight through to the next page which explains the benefits of Membership and has a downloadable version of the QCI Membership form should you wish to join straightaway.

To discover the Club magazine, the Journal, or to read about the fabulous annual meetings that members have enjoyed over the past 10 years, simply click on the links.

If you want information on the upcoming meeting in Dallas you’ll have to look on the Members Only page.
By now I’m sure you’ll have been convinced to join so we’ve provided not one but two links to the Membership form on this page.
The next link will take you to the Calendar where you will find information, which has been submitted by our members, about upcoming Quimper related events such as Antique shows, auctions, exhibits and tours.
Members who wish to add an event to the Calendar will find a form to use on the Members Only page.

Monet's garden at Giverny, the Cathedral in Rouen and the city of Wells, Somerset are just three of the wonderful places that QCI members have visited whilst attending an annual meeting.

The QCI also provides automatic links to members' web sites, as a privilege of membership and also links to sites of non-members on a reciprocal basis. On the links page you’ll find web addresses relating to Quimper faïence, old and new and other pottery information, auctions, restorers and other things that may be of interest.

If you need general Club information, or which relates to the Journal or have questions about the website you’ll find the relevant email addresses and the address of the QCI Secretary on the Contact page.

That completes the guided tour but one last thing............. were you wondering where the link to the blog is?
So was I. Then I remembered, it’s on the page for Members Only!
Thanks for taking the tour with me, hope you enjoyed yourselves,
à bientôt.
