National Juried Show (NJS) - A Must See Show

Alaskan Nasturium -
Catherine Sloan & Janet Rice-Bredin
2014 Winner
Quilt Canada 2015 is just over 5 weeks away, and everything is starting to come together.  The jury has completed their very difficult task of deciding which quilts have made it in to this prestigious show.  There are 129 gorgeous quilts in the National Juried Show this year!  I can't wait to see them. (To see who made it, see blog on the Finalists)

Canada is very well represented at the NJS. A quilt or two from almost every province!  There are even international entries: two from the United States and one all the way across the ocean, from Great Britain.  CQA/ACC and the LOC are thrilled with the response from quilters who answered the Call for Entry and they can't wait to get the quilts up and hanging so that these amazing works of art will be seen by people from all across this great country of ours.  I personally am looking forward to being Blown Away!

2014 Winner


And after you've seen the NJS, you can take in the other quilt (or concurrent) shows, that will be on display at the same time at the University of Lethbridge.  

EVERYONE is welcome!

There will be the:
  • Trend-Tex Challenge show, featuring quilts made with a specific challenge fabric that will be auctioned off,

  • Invitational Show, featuring quilts by LOC members, teachers and CQA/ACC board members, and

That's 5 different, and fabulous quilt shows - all being held at one location at the same time!  No wonder Quilt Canada 2015 is a destination event! 

Mark it on your calendar and start counting the days.
We hope to see you there!
