If this is your first time attending this show, you are in for a treat! You will see hundreds of quilts displayed throughout the park, contributed by quilters from all across GTA and the province, as well as a sprinkling from further away too! There are trunk shows to attend, vendors and a marketplace to tempt you, and this year we will have a food truck from The Gourmet Gringos, as well as an ice cream truck to help keep you cool. AND tomorrow we can all start checking the long range weather forecast.. fingers crossed!
Jane, Shirley, Judy and Valerie are BUSY behind the scenes getting everything ready for the show- thanks to all of you who have volunteered to help at the show, and those who have submitted quilts. What would we do without those quilts?? And this is one corner of my office.. overflowing with forms, bags, labels, quilts, and all the other things we need to make this show happen.

11:30 am: Bill Stearman
Bill started sewing- and making quilts- when he was laid up with a serious leg injury and needed something to distract himself from the pain. He never stopped and now has close to 70 quilts under his belt.His quilts tell a story- part of his own personal life story.
Bill is one busy man- he continues to learn, play and work on his craft, he takes a wide variety of workshops, gives presentations and is a member of numerous guilds and quilt groups. His quilts have been exhibited in juried and non-juried shows in both Canada and the USA. Don’t miss his talk- he is a very enthusiastic and outgoing quilter with a great story to tell.
