As the title suggests, the Spring Retreat has been moved to April 10-12. There was a scheduling conflict with our venue, and we did not want to move it later than the original date.

Congratulations to Anna Hergert on being named CQA’s Teacher of the Year for 2014.
The award recognizes the outstanding teaching contribution of a teacher of quilting in Canada. Its purpose is to recognize a teacher “who has made a lasting impression on his/her students of quiltmaking, thereby insuring that the craft continues as part of our heritage.”
Anna talks about the award on her blog, at http://annahergert.me/2014/06/17/teacher-of-the-year. Her acceptance speech will appear in the fall edition of the Canadian Quilter Magazine.
