The World Quilt Competition XXII will be judged August 16-18, 2018 at World Quilt New England in Manchester, New Hampshire.  I am the Canadian Coordinator for the competition and ask if you would pass this information onto your membership.

The deadline for contest entrants to postmark or email completed entries is May 14, 2018.  You may mail your entry and images (on a CD), or scan and email your entry form to me at quiltluverdebbie@netscape.net along with the full view and close up images of your quilt.

There are many talented quilters living in Canada and I would like to encourage more people to enter.  As well as the potential to earn prize money, quilts will include an extended tour of the USA increasing visibility among fellow artists.
