CALLING CGNA QUILTERS!
For our next CGNA conference in May 2017, we are creating a Canada Quilt
to raffle as it is Canada’s 150th birthday and is in keeping with the
theme of GERONTOLOGICAL NURSING: SHAPING HEALTHCARE FOR THOSE WHO SHAPED
CANADA. Funds raised will go to the Memorial Scholarship Fund. Our hope
is to have one quilt block representing each province and territory. The
idea is for each quilter to choose or design a pattern for a quilt block
that is representative of some part of your province or territory (e.g.
Sharon may make a block that represents Alberta by doing a quilt block
with mountains and the sun). We already have a CGNA quilter each from
Alberta, Newfoundland and Prince Edward Island who have volunteered, so
we are looking for a quilter from each of the other provinces and
territories. We are incorporating a Canada Flag block in the quilt and
will mail a fat quarter of the red fabric to each quilter to use if they
have red fabric as part of their design.
If you are interested in contributing a block for your province or
territory please email: email@example.com as soon as
possible. We would like to know that we have across Canada
We plan to accept the first volunteer from each province or territory.
We would like the blocks by November 1st in order to assemble and quilt
it for the beginning of May 2017 conference!
Thank you, Diane and the 2017 Conference Planning Committee
