Meet a New Director

Did you notice I was MIA last week?   I had just got home from Quilt Market and 6 days later was getting on another airplane to fly off to the east coast of the country for another week.   I arrived in Halifax and spent a crazy busy week learning the ropes.   As of July 1st, I will be joining the Board of Directors for Canada's National Quilting Association!  Once inducted into this position on the Board, you are presented with a 'chatelaine'.  I have attached a picture below of me with my brand new chatelaine!

I am super excited and even more so now that I have met the group of ladies I will be working with.  They are dedicated, fun loving, enjoy laughing, and most importantly, totally believe in working hard, playing hard and doing it as a team!  I am so excited to begin my journey with them.



During the week I was there, it was our national quilting conference as well.   The Canadian Quilting Association has a national juried show (in which 2 of my pieces were in=), offers a slew of workshops and dinners and evening entertainment each night.   Teachers for the workshops included the infamous Barbara Olson, Karen Menzies, Joyce O'Connell, Hilary Rice, and the list goes on.   There is also a terrrific vendors market set up for the week too.
Below are some pictures of the lecture Barbara Olson did.   Simply astounding quilts!



Next time I post, it will be a giveaway=)
