A message from the CQA/ACC Board of Directors and Executive Director regarding

 Quilt Canada 2020

We are closely following the circumstances of COVID-19 as it impacts communities and events internationally and at home.  Just as you are, we are very concerned about the health and well-being of all of our members. 

At this time we are cautiously optimistic that Quilt Canada will take place in Edmonton, June 18 – 20, 2020.  We hope to provide a full program including the National Juried Show, concurrent quilt shows, workshops and day and evening lectures, over 70 vendors, and the Quilt Judge Certification Program.

We ask you for your patience.  We know that vendors are preparing to stock their booths, teachers and lecturers are preparing their presentations and classes, the volunteers are preparing for their days of planning and setting up the show and the myriad of other tasks that they perform over the course of the show, and our Quilt Judge Certification Program leaders and students are also working to prepare curriculum and complete assignments.  There has been so much time, talent and energy already expended in the lead up to our annual show.  You may be aware that the Jury Coordinator and her team of judges have already spent weeks choosing the quilts that will be on display at the National Juried Show. And so many of you have already registered for workshops and lectures or bought your entry tickets.   For all of these reasons, and more, we do not want to be too precipitous or hasty in our decision.

Our host venue, the Edmonton Convention Centre has indicated that they are very sensitive to the situation but have not as yet established a cancellation/postponement policy.

Our next update will be sent on April 8. Until then if you have questions or comments, please contact:

Thank you and stay healthy
