**Breaking News: Schedule Change**
The YHQG Exec is excited to announce that the Member Technique Showcase, formerly planned for March, has been moved ahead to January. The reason is that the deadline to submit quilts to the Canadian Quilters’ Association Juried Show is Feburary 1. The Member Technique Showcase will feature a talk by YHQG members and certified judges Tracy Lawko, Kathy Wylie and Helen Benninger on the topic of successfully preparing and submitting applications to juried quilt shows. So, in order to maximize its usefulness to our members, we rescheduled the Showcase.
Our members are exceptionally talented and we wish to encourage everybody to share their work with the world. Our work deserves to be seen and appreciated! For more information about the CQA Juried Show, please visit here: http://njs.canadianquilter.com/
After the talk, you will be able to attend mini-workshops on interesting quilting techniques! A taste of the possible topics: how to sharpen your rotary cutter blade, reverse appliqué, choosing the right quilting pattern for your quilt top, beading and embellishing, trapunto and french cording, making quilt labels on your computer, machine embroidery, fabric dying… after we receive member input, the topics will be finalized.
Now, go think about which of your quilts you’d like to enter!
