Calling All Ontario Quilters!

December 31, 2009

Calls for Entry:
Quilt of Possibilities

Celebrating Ontario’s Greenbelt
Deadline: 5:00 pm, Friday January 29, 2010.

In celebration of the fifth anniversary of Ontario’s Greenbelt, the Ontario Crafts Council (OCC) and the Friends of the Greenbelt Foundation (GBF) are working together to develop a community quilt celebrating this diverse and vibrant green space.

We are seeking interest from craftspeople, artists, community groups and guilds to submit a handcrafted square to be included in the quilt.
Participants are encouraged to share their ideas and memories of what the Greenbelt means to them, how it has impacted and enriched their lives and to explore how possibilities grow in the Greenbelt. We are seeking submissions from individuals who have lived in, spent time in or have been greatly impacted by Ontario’s Greenbelt. The completed quilt will be unveiled at the Greenbelt’s marquee event in early March 2010. Following this it will then travel to various venues throughout the Greenbelt over the course of the following year.

For more information and a full project description, please visit www.craft.on.ca/Programs/Greenbelt

If you are interested in submitting a square, an expression of interest would be appreciated by January 14th, as to provide an initial perspective on numbers. Please contact Kate Busby, Project Curator, either by e-mail at greenbeltquilt@gmail.com or by phone at 416-925-4222  ext. 228.
