World Quilt XX Call for Entry Just Announced!

WorldQuiltLowResI have had the privilege to judge entries to World Quilt at the New England Quilt Show in Manchester in 2014 and 2015. (I will be missing it this year as I have had my two years in a row… so let’s see how else we can represent Canada!)

Here are a few prize winners from 2013 & 2015:

It is always an honor to see these amazing quilts up close and admire the original design, workmanship and innovation. What I noticed first and foremost: There were not many entries from Canada, in fact our country never met the minimum number of entries (10) to receive the “Best of Country Award” in 2014 and 2015! I was so disappointed!

I asked around and was informed that a new coordinator was appointed for 2016. In fact, the new Coordinator has been a long time friend of mine, and I am so very excited to help distribute the information for World Quilt & Textile 2016.

Here is what I received from Debbie MacLeod yesterday. Hot of the press, so to speak!

“The World Quilt Competition XX will be judged August 18-20, 2016 at World Quilt New England in Manchester, New Hampshire.  I am pleased to announce that I am the new Canadian Coordinator for the competition.  Contact me at for an entry form.

The deadline for contest entrants to postmark or email completed entries is May 16, 2016.  You may mail your entry and images (on a CD), or scan and email your entry form to me at along with one full view and one close up images of your quilt.
Please consider entering  and/or passing this information on to any interested quilters or guilds in your area.  There are many talented quilters living in Canada and I would like to encourage more people to enter.
Debbie MacLeod”

I urge every Canadian Quilter to consider this amazing opportunity! Do you have a quilt that you are proud of? Do you have a quilt that has received a ribbon at the last quilt show? Do you have a quilt that made it into the NJS? Now is your time to shine even more and spread the news that Canada has fabulous quilters. Debbie is awaiting your participation.

I have taught all over the country and I know we have very accomplished quilters in our midst. Mancuso Show Management  is an organization that truly honors quilting and its makers! The prizes are many and provide a nice boost to anyone’s quilt stash budget! Not to mention, you can put “World Quilt New England, Manchester, NH” on your CV.
