Going to the Stampede in Calgary? You might stop by the Crowfoot Library (8665 Nose Hill Drive N.W.) to see the Calgary SAQA POD's locally-produced exhibit, Road Trip.
If you missed this one when it showed at Fish Creek Library in April, do try to make it up to the Crowfoot venue. It will be there through July 24. From there it goes to the High River Library (909 - 1st Street S.W., High River, AB) from Aug. 2 - 31.
Fancy art on the hoof? There's an Artwalk going on in Camrose, Alberta this summer which includes work by Mary Wilton, another one of our Alberta members. From July 20 through September 6, you can see her work at the Jeanne & Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre, 4901 46 Avenue, Camrose, as part of that city's 21st Annual Artwalk, sponsored by the Camrose Art Society.

Calgary Area POD is hosting a workshop in High River. Presented not long ago in B.C. by the Lower Mainland POD, here's an opportunity for members all over the Region -- but particularly east of the Rockies! -- to find the answer to that eternal question, "What Were the Judges Thinking?"
The workshop is described as "Module 1 of the CQA quilt judge certification program" and is designed for anyone who is considering becoming a judge, scribe, juror or aide, or for those interested in organizing a judged show, or simply expanding their knowledge about judged competitions.
- Date: Saturday, September 10, 2016.
- Location: High River Library, 901 - 1st Street S.W., High River, AB.
- Time: 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
- Cost: $50.00 per person, including kit fee.
