Welcome to the Tuesday Preview. Have you ever been to a CQA/ACC National Juried 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.
My favourite part about a show this size is the incredible display of quilts and it is just so much fun to meet up with friends from all over Canada and take part in the festivities. This year I'll be taking my Part III Quilt Judge Certification test so wish me luck! I'll also be doing on the spot interviews, book signings, checking out the vendors, events, dinners and more. So this week on Episode # 71 of the CQT Podcast I'll start things off a few months early by giving you a preview of what to expect for this year's CQA/ACC 2015 National Juried Show.
Quilt Canada 2015
June 4 - 6, 2015
You can check out the CQA/ACC WEBSITE for everything from lodging, events and local sights to merchants, teachers and more... The local committee in Lethbridge has worked hard for a year and they have a great show in store for attendees. And if you are planning on taking the tour of Waterton Park while you are there, they say it compares to Banff, but without all the tourists!
And . . .We have a winner for this week's Quilter's Corner brought to you by Northcott Silk Inc.
