It’s time for another Quilt Canada Conference, this year in Halifax, Nova Scotia.I arrived late Sunday night after flying through the most inspiring cloud formations. Yesterday was spent with organizational commitments and in preparation for teaching.
There will not be much time to explore this historical city but I always make the most of finding treasures in my immediate surrounding. The first morning was grey and rainy. Discovering the lichen and moss composition on the stacked stone wall surrounding our dorms was a welcome surprise. An inner courtyard lush with green grass, tree branches obscured by leaves, and stone walls adorned with Virginia Creeper invite us to claim a brightly colored garden chair for a brief time of rest away from the hustle and bustle of people rushing from point A to point B.
The official activities will begin tomorrow with the AGM of the Canadian Quilters’ Association, followed by the Awards Ceremony and official opening of the NJS (National Juried Show) in the evening. It promises to be a spectacular event with 126 entries in various categories.
If you are in or near Halifax this week make sure to visit the numerous exhibitions at the Dalhousie University Campus and in various galleries around the city. For details check out the Quilt Canada 2012 Blog site!
