International Quilting Day

International Quilting Day Registration Has Gone Live!

The Planning Team for International Quilting Day 2022 has:

  1. Published the schedule for an exciting day of quilting education;
  2. Opened the Virtual Quilt Show submission system; and 
  3. Opened registration for the big day! 

We’ve kept your favourite parts of last year’s event: an amazing line up of speakers; the Virtual Quilt Show; a vendor showcase and door prizes! This year, we’ve added a lively feature presentation with Meg Cox, from the International Quilt Museum.

This event is a collaboration by Royal City Quilters’ Guild, York Heritage Quilters Guild, and Waterloo County Quilters’ Guild, and is free to all members of those guilds. People who are not members of one of the sponsoring guilds can participate upon payment of a $20 fee.

Unlike last year, you don’t need to register for individual sessions; you can drop into whatever sessions you want to. You just need to register for the day.
