A stitch in time
Looking to improve your free-motion quilting? Christina Cameli might just have the answer. “Finding Your Flow with Free Motion Quilting” is so new it’s not even on her website yet! It was created as a follow up to the “Combining Designs” workshop that many of us took in 2020.
The Vancouver Island chapter of Surface Design Association is hosting a conference in June in Duncan, BC. Our group is having an exhibition of our work at CVAC gallery in Duncan for a month during that time. We have a few spaces left in workshops and lectures. We are excited to be having an in person reception for our exhibition on June 15 and welcome you to join us and chat with the artists. The reception is followed by the opening slide lecture that evening give by me: In Search of Wild Silk. It is a glimpse into the fascinating world of wild silk in the jungles of India. Please pass the following information on to anyone you think may be interested in joining us.

A NOTE FROM YOUR CQA LOWER MAINLAND REPRESENTATIVE
I hope you are all as excited as I am about the upcoming Quilt Canada to be held in the Vancouver Convention Centre East June 15 – 18. After so many months of no quilt shows I think it is going to be amazing to be able to see quilts in real life. There are lots of things to look forward to – the National Juried Show, the concurrent shows, the merchant mall, the workshops and lectures. You still have time to order your Trendtex package and complete an entry – I really love the colours and patterns for this year- not sure what I will do, but one of the fabrics is saying “water” to me. The listing of workshops will be out soon – if you are an individual member of CQA, you will have a chance to register before non-members at a reduced price.
You can check everything out at https://canadianquilter.com/quilt-canada-2022/ or you can contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org . And remember, I am available to talk to your guild about CQA and/or about Quilt Canada this year.
