Quilt Canada 2020 Cancelled
April 30, 2020

Dear CQA/ACC Members,

The CQA/ACC Board of Directors and staff have been closely monitoring announcements from our Canadian health agencies, the provincial and federal governments and, given the present circumstance, we regretfully announce our decision to cancel Quilt Canada 2020 in Edmonton. This difficult decision was made to ensure the health and safety of all of our attendees.  We are very disappointed and know that you share in this sentiment.

We will be working behind the scenes in the coming weeks to see how we might share the wonderful quilts that were to be displayed at Quilt Canada on our website in a virtual quilt show. Please stay tuned for more information about our new website, launching this summer, showcasing Canadian quilting and quilters and some aspects of Quilt Canada 2020 in a virtual manner.

If you have registered to come to Quilt Canada 2020, you will receive an email from the Quilt Canada Registrar, Janet Kasper today. You will receive a full refund. Refunds will be issued automatically within the next 3 months. Please reach out to us if you have not received a refund by August 1, 2020.

If you are a CQA/ACC Member Guild who has donated money towards Quilt Canada 2020 we appreciate your support. CQA/ACC has incurred many expenses related to the conference that are not refundable.  Now that the conference has been cancelled you can choose one of three options for this donation. You can leave it with us for next year’s Quilt Canada in Toronto, you can leave it with us for a general donation to the Association or you can request a refund by contacting our Treasurer, Brenda Horvath, at treasurer@canadianquilter.com prior to June 1, 2020.

We look forward to presenting a wonderful conference and celebration next year at Quilt Canada 2021, which is CQA/ACC’s fortieth anniversary year. We hope you can join us for the party in Toronto June 15-19, 2021.

Thank you and stay healthy,
Carole and Jane
