What are we doing besides thinking positive about sunshine? Lots!
Quilt applications are closed now, and we will have over 250 quilts on display.. Quilts of Valour will be in their usual spot, and nearby will be a display of Community Quilts made by volunteers at York Heritage Quilters Guild. My quilts are ALMOST done (just that dreaded binding to attach!). I will be at Montgomery’s Inn farmer’s market (Islington and Dundas) this Wednesday and next to promote our show.. see you there?
There will be approximately 50 quilts for sale at our show, and don’t forget to visit Shop ‘Round the Corner, where we will be selling quilt-related items. Here are some of Shirley’s pincushions. I have developed an addiction for these, and buy one every year at the show.
We will have some special quilts on display in the vendor area this year- three quilts made by a member of the Stong family, probably made in the late 1800s or early 1900s. The Stongs were the original pioneers in this area, and Black Creek Pioneer Village is located on their former farm.
Thinking of food? The food area near the vendors will be open again this summer. In addition, there is a small cafe selling sandwiches, soups , salads, etc. in the gift shop as you enter the park. Or bring a lunch and picnic at one of the picnic tables throughout the park.
There may be one or two spaces left if you want to take Amy Garro’s Icy Waters, a paper piecing workshop on Saturday.. contact Sandy Lindal ASAP if interested.
A big thanks for all of you who are volunteering at the show, displaying your quilts, or simply coming to see the show. Your help is what makes this event a success- see you soon!
