November Monthly Meeting
November 7 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Doors open at 6:30 pm.
Business Meeting: The meeting begins at 7:00 pm, usually lasting 30-40 minutes.
Program: Join us as we welcome Carole McCarville, CQA/ACC Executive Director, as she brings the “2022 Rewire Individual CQA/ACC Member Challenge” and the “2022 Reaffirm CQA/ACC Member Guild Challenge” quilts to the Mahone Bay Quilt Guild for a trunk show. These thirty wall hangings, which were displayed at Quilt Canada 2022 in Vancouver this past June, are a wonderful example of Canadian quilters imagination and talent.
And have you heard…. Quilt Canada 2023 is coming to Halifax on June 7-10 ?!?
Perhaps after seeing the 2022 challenge quilts, you will be inspired to create an entry for one of the 2023 challenges to be displayed in Halifax next June.
In addition to the trunk show, Carole will give you detailed information about QC2023, including how you can help by volunteering to show quilters from across Canada and beyond what Nova Scotia hospitality is all about.
Sew & Tell: The meeting wraps up with sharing our completed projects. If you’re bringing items in person, then look for the sign up sheet. If you will attend via Zoom, please send a photo of your sew & tell items to Barb Robson at email@example.com no later than 2 days before the meeting.
