Yes, there are Waiting Lists for all Workshops. Due to Covid Restrictions there have been several of the class sizes that have had to be restricted. It is hoped that closer to June – restrictions might improve and allow us to move people in from the Wait Lists. Once the Wait List is emptied, we will re-open any workshops involved to further registration.
These are linked to the Workshop Writeups online and will be posted in March. https://canadianquilter.com/quilt-canada-2022-classes-and-lectures/

Timing conflicts are your responsibility. We do everything we can to stop this from happening, however should you double book yourself, please contact the Registrar to assist in rectifying this.
Please Note: Instructors cannot be expected to catch people up who have left the workshop for significant periods of time.
The Registrar can fix your order within 48 hours if something went wrong (no fee). After this time the Cancellation/Change Policy does go into effect. Please check your First Confirmation Email immediately to ensure that it is as it should be with no conflicts.
This printable chart listing all offerings by day, time and Instructor. It is found under the “Workshops-at-a-Glance” Tab on the main website.
It is updated frequently regarding what is FULL. It has the names of the workshops, Instructors, times and class codes on it.
People use it as:
• To check for full classes and what is open when you are deciding what to take.
• An aid to track their schedule at the show in real time (times on the schedule will be Pacific time). Take a yellow Highlight pen and highlight everything that you have registered for.
Digital Name tags will be sent to all Registrants early in June within the second Confirmation Email. Name Tags WILL NOT be provided at the show.
The second Confirmation Email, sent approximately 2 weeks prior to the start of the conference, will list your registered items and give additional important information. Included will be any updated or recent information, the most recent list of what you have registered for, tickets that you might have purchased and your digital name tag.
This Second Confirmation Email needs to be printed and taken to the show to allow admittance to many things.
NOTE: The Digital Name Tag on the second email will contain the information that you shared under your contact information (names, city, province/state and country) on the Registration Form. Print the name tag, then cut it out and slip it into one of the plastic name tag sleeves that most of us have gathered over the years. Why not be creative with your name tag holder?
