Quilt Canada is being held in the Vancouver this year. Pretty exciting!! It is being held May 31, June 1 and June 2, 2018 at the Vancouver Convention Centre.
May 31 – 9:30am – 6pm
June 1 – 9:30am – 6pm
June 2 – 9:30am – 4pm
There are several ways you will be able to get involved.
CQA will need a lot of volunteers to host such a large show. A volunteer application form is available on the event website below:
Also prior to the Quilt Canada, the CQA is holding a focus group which will assist them in setting the future direction of the organization. Please consider taking part in this important event.
Finally, the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild has been asked to host the Modern Quilt Guild Quiltcon Travelling Quilt Exhibition which is being held as part of Quilt Canada 2018. We will be asking for volunteers to assist us with hanging the show, take-down as well as being available at the event to represent modern quilting and the Quiltcon quilts to all of the Quilt Canada attendees.
Below is the Best in Show quilt from Quiltcon 2018 which is wrapping up today. “Going Up” by Stephanie Skardal from Clemmons, NC. It is very likely that this quilt will be at Quilt Canada. I can’t wait to see it in person.
We will let you know about these volunteer opportunities at an upcoming VMQG meeting and watch this space as well!!
Thanks and looking forward to seeing you at the show.
