Festival of Quilts — October 2021 Update

The Feature Quilter Exhibit showcasing the work of Lois Miller was originally to be held on October 2nd and 3rd, at Focus on Fibre Art, 9532- 87 Street NW, Edmonton.  EDQG members have attended and enjoyed the many beautiful quilts made by Lois.  This exhibit is now extended for the whole month of October.  Please check the ACUA website for hours https://acuarts.ca/contact-us/    Thanks, Lois, for sharing your creations and knowledge and for spending time with all who attended.  This exhibit is destined to be enjoyed by many.  The quilts that were hung will remain for the month of October for those of you who could not attend this weekend and missed these stunning creations.

The next online 50/50 will be held in November and the draw will take place at the December guild meeting.  Visit  the website for the Raffle box link to purchase your ticket.   As with previous draws, the proceeds will be used to pay for the space for the 2023 Quilt Show.  Thanks for your support of this fundraising initiative.

While the 2023 EDQG Quilt Show is far away, we are beginning to make decisions on theme, categories, etc..   There are a lot of details to take care of.  Soon we will introduce you to the members on the 2023 EDQG Festival of Quilts  Show Committee.  We hold monthly meetings via Zoom.   If you have an interest in participating in this bi-annual event organized by the EDQG, please contact me and I will try to answer any questions you may have.  As always, we look forward to receiving your suggestions and ideas any time!  Happy sewing!
