Why not give the gift of fabric? Despite the cancellation of the in-person conference next June, we are continuing with the 2021 TrendTex Challenge and one of our challenge kits make a terrific gift. With next year’s theme being Friendship, how could you go wrong?

Each kit includes five fat quarters of the scrumptious challenge fabrics shown above and can be easily purchased online. If you prefer, print the 2021 TrendTex Fabric Kit Mail-in Form, complete it, and send it along with with a cheque, money order (payable to CQA/ACC) or credit card payment (members: $25, non-members: $30), plus applicable taxes to:
