The Quilting Spectrum
Quilting activities run the gamut from wall art to sculpture to fantastical bed coverings. Janome is pleases to be a part of Canada’s national quilt shows: The Grand National as well as the CQA (Canadian Quilter’s Association) 2011 conference.
Balancing Act is the theme for the 2011 Grand National. Janome has the honor of producing the catalog for this show and the broad range of work that will be on display will capture your attention and inspire you in its diversity. Color, technique and a full flavoured artistic vocabulary will leave you questioning the meaning of Balance in your life and sparking new ideas of where your sewing might take you artistically.
May 24 – 28, the CQA hosts Quilt Ontario in London. All of the latest news can be found on the Quilt Ontario Blog – but highlights include classes (hosted on Janome machines in the classrooms), juried shows and a gala night featuring the entertainment of Juno nominated artists, Dala. In addition, eye candy galore, Anniversary Cake and a tempting vendor mall will all make for quilt excursion like no other.
