There is a photo gallery of our winners of the National Juried Show, Trend-Tex Challenge and guild Rosette winners. Our conferences have a page with links to events, teachers, etc. Our new Professional Membership allows for searches: by name, location and services provided, including certified judges for your quilt show. All contact information is listed.A new project being developed is to spotlight our newsletter on the front page, with links to a summary, an article and information on ordering back issues.Our association serves quilters across Canada, keeping them informed and united to promote quilting.
