Agnes Boal Bursary

The Canadian Quilters’ Association/Association canadienne de la courtepointe (CQA/ACC) offers two kinds of awards for guilds/groups only. These are the Agnes Boal Bursary and rosettes.

The Agnes Boal Bursary is sponsored by the CQA/ACC in memory of Agnes Boal, a former President of the CQA/ACC whose love of quilting and the CQA/ACC were evident to all who knew her. Annually, $750 is awarded to a CQA/ACC member guild/group to assist them in bringing a Canadian teacher (who is a member of CQA/ACC) to their area to conduct a workshop or give a lecture. The winning group will be invited to share the teaching experience they arrange, in an issue of The Canadian Quilter.
