QuiltCon - from home!
It's almost time for the MQG's annual convention - QuiltCon - and we know that not everyone can attend in person. This year's QuiltCon is in Atlanta, and as a guild, we have our Community Challenge Quilt hanging in the show.
The QuiltCon awards ceremony will be streamed live on Wednesday, February 22nd at 5pm MST. To watch, this link will be active during the awards ceremony. The MQG staff have asked for patience if the awards ceremony starts a minute or two beyond its scheduled start time.
The MQG also has a retrospective on past QuiltCon Best of Show winners, from the process to the winning quilts. Access to the article is here . The article requires a current MQG membership (Calgary or otherwise), and your log-in is the email address your MQG account is attached to.
There are Calgary MQG Members who are participating in the MQG Mini Swap (#MQGMiniSwap, #MakeaMiniMakeaFriend), which features participation by mail or in person. The sign-ups for the swap are usually in the early fall, so if you're jealous of the gorgeous minis coming through, consider signing up for 2024. We're hoping to feature received minis at an upcoming meeting.
In addition to "official" MQG channels, our Calgary MQG instagram account will be full of stories from a trip to Atlanta and QuiltCon - be sure and follow us there for all of the details!
