Museum Hosting 41st Annual Fibre Arts and Quilt Fair
HOPEWELL CAPE – With the summer weather finally here, cozying up in a quilt may be the last thing on your mind, but quilts are a hot commodity at the Albert County Museum right now as one of its major fundraisers gets underway.
The 41st Annual Fiber Arts and Quilt Fair is underway this week, beginning on July 11 and lasting until July 15 at the Hopewell Cape Community Hall at the Albert County Museum, 3940 Route 114, Hopewell Cape, NB.
A hand quilting workshop will be offered from 9:30am to noon and a rug hooking workshop offered from 1pm to 4 pm. Pre-registration for the workshops is required. Call the museum at 734-2003 for details.
“The quilt show is the single biggest fundraiser for us,” said museum curator Melody Land. “We greatly appreciate the support from those who attend this event, as well as the time put in by our wonderful volunteers to organize and keep this show running.”
The show will also once again include a raffle for one of the quilts. Tickets can be purchased throughout the summer and the quilt, which features an amazing hearts motif called “Vintage Valentine”, can be shipped anywhere in North America.
Admission to the quilt show is just three dollars per person and includes access to the Canada 150 Quilt Display. The Quilt Show & Sale is open each day during the museum’s regular hours, from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
