Welcome Quilters

Hi there!

My name is Jackie White and as of July 1st, 2012 I will be joining the CQA/ACC Board of Directors.   When the opportunity came up to help out with the CQA/ACC blog, I jumped at the chance!   I have my own blog  and absolutely love doing it.   I have 'met' some of the greatest people in the world and can honestly call them dear friends.  It has been a wonderful experience and I hope to have as much fun on this blog with all of you!

Until I really get my feet wet as to exactly how I am to run this blog, I thought I would showcase a few Canadian blogs for you to peruse through.

The Needle and Thread Network is a Canadian blog run by my dear friend Monika.  Her 'Prairie Dress' was just in the NJS in Halifax.  She has opportunities for you to see what many other Canadians are working on every Wednesday.   I look after the Call for Entry page, to let you know what shows are out there for you to enter.

Judy Martin, just won an award at the recent National Juried Show in Halifax.   She is a very well known art quilter who excels in hand work and putting a modern twist on traditional work.

Anna Hergert who has had her work accepted into many many shows is a lovely lady who does fabulous workshops and lectures, and currently co-runs the judging program for CQA/ACC.

Elaine Quehl is a wonderful Canadian teacher and lecturer.   Her work has been published, won awards and is loved by all.  How she can make the hosta plant look life like with fabric is beyond words.  She also just won an award at the NJS.

Go and check out these wonderful Canadian blogs, and if you like them, be sure to 'follow' so you don't miss any of their wonderful work.  Please check back here often as there will be constant updates on Quilt BC and lots of fun quilting tips and tidbits to keep you motivated and inspired.
