All items in the Community Hall are for sale! We will have over 100 quilts plus a wide array of lap, baby quilts and quilt tops and small finished articles—everything from pin cushions, pot holders, hand towels, baby items, purses, scarfs, socks, mitts to beautiful wool hooked rugs! Sewn, knitted, cross stitched and crocheted articles are always popular but we will also have a few wool felted pieces. If it is made of fibre, you could possibility see it at our show!
This year our quilt display in the Courthouse is "Appliqué Through the Ages" featuring quilts from the museum and local fabric artists. On Wednesday, July11th (2– 4pm,) there will be demonstration on appliqué techniques. Learn about the history of appliqué and techniques we use on both wool and cotton; there are more options that black blanket stitch!
There will also be a Rug Hooking workshop on Friday, July 13th (10am-4pm). In this workshop, you will learn basic rug hooking techniques plus the Proddy Method to add beautiful dimension to your rugs.
