Vancouver Modern has space available in their up coming workshop with Christine Camelli –

Finding Your Flow with Free-Motion Quilting

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.

Christina is based in Portland and has been sewing since she was child. In 2003 she fell in love with quilting. She has authored five quilting books and is a quilt pattern and fabric designer.  She is also a nurse-midwife, mom and paddle boarder.  She believes that quilting is where she puts herself back together. She loves teaching, creating and sharing with others.

A NOTE FROM YOUR CQA LOWER MAINLAND REPRESENTATIVE

Hello everyone,

 

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 bclmrep@canadianquilter.com . And remember, I am available to talk to your guild about CQA and/or about Quilt Canada this year.

 

Janet Harper, BC Lower Mainland Representative, CQA

Brenda Miller nominated our guild in the arts catergory for the Port Moody Civic Awards and on Dec 14 it was announced that the quild was a recipient of an award.
