Edmonton & District Quilters' Guild (EDQG)

2021 Festival of Quilts

As you are aware, the Quilt Show Committee is busy working on the next show in June of 2021. With Covid-19, who knows what the world will look like at that time. For now, we are proceeding as if we can go ahead and if necessary, we will cancel if need be. It is a lot of work to put the show together and it cannot be done at the last minute so we forge ahead.quilting-retreat-clipart


That being said, I hope you are all busy putting together your very best creations for entry. There can’t be a Show without quilts that is for sure! There are so many talented quilters in the Guild and it is always a joy to see what you’ve created.


In the early Fall, we will be putting out the list of categories and as well as the Show Rules. Stay tuned for a few interesting new categories.


Over the summer, we would like you to consider who you would like to nominate as the Feature Quilter for the Show. Talk with your friends and get together to nominate a deserving member of the Guild. I know there are many to chose from and it will be a difficult decision. Please contact Darlene Conroy (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) if you have any questions regarding the Feature Quilter.


The nomination form will be going up on the web site in the very near future.


Charlene Thompson has ordered new postcards using some of your quilts from the last show and they look great. Assuming that we have a guild meeting in September, you can get some for distribution at that time. You can get in touch with Charlene or myself if you want postcards now. Myrna – This email address is being protected from spambots.

So you all have Quilt Show homework over the summer!


Enjoy and I hope to see you all in September.
