The program at our Thursday January 9, 2020 meeting was the Post Card Challenge for the Canadian Quilt Association Conference in Edmonton this coming June. When we did this for the 2018 Conference, we handed in 52 of the 1,600+ that were sold and $11,000 were donated to Children’s Hospital. This year 100% of the funds raised will go to Edmonton Glenrose Pediatric Brain Injury Unit.
For this year’s challenge, Anni prepared 50 pieces of fabric and with the help of Mary Ann and Margot they were fused to a backing with the post card stamp belonging to Margot. We are off to a good start!
I don’t believe the following was mentioned:
The cards this year are to be inspired by Nature (pretty open theme!) and are to be returned at the April 9th meeting for mailing. I can accept them at any time but they need to be received in Edmonton by May 1.
It is not necessary to have the stamped fabric to make your card. The information is on our WebSite with the backing and stiffening requirements and the size is 4” x 6”.
