Canadian Quilter's Association (CQA) 2014 - Wonders of Niagara
Welcome to the Tuesday Preview. Have you ever been to a CQA National Quilt Show? There is so much to take in that it can just be the greatest adventure and a perfect reason to hit the road with a few friends.
I'm so honoured to have been chosen as a CQA judge this year and I'm excited to board the plane in less than 2 weeks to take part in the festivities. I'll be judging, doing on the spot interviews, checking out the vendors, events, dinners and more. I'm even taking a workshop as a brand new user of EQ7 for Mac! So this week on the podcast I'll be giving you a preview of what to expect for this year's CQA/ACC 2014 National Juried Show.
