I am doing my best to keep the list of Quilt Shows and Events on our sidebar up to date. This weekend I received notice of a Show in PEI this fall that might interest you: St. Paul's Anglican Church in Charlottetown proudly presents "Stories in Stitches- Quilts, Hooked Rugs and other Gems" Tuesday Sept. 24 to Saturday Sept. 28th, 2013. A feast for the eyes and soul in one of architect William Critchlow Harris's outstanding 19th century churches. Come and enjoy the colourful artistic creativity of Maritime quilters, rug hookers and embroiderers. Open weekdays from 10a.m. to 4p.m. and Saturday from 10a.m. to 2p.m. The admission fee of $5.00 is in support of church ministries.
St. Paul's is located at the corner of Grafton and Prince Streets. For more information or to register a submission, call 1-902-892-1691. Deadline for registration is September 6. Sounds like a good reason for a little jaunt to beautiful PEI in September!
We have several other September shows coming up closer to home too: Miramichi QG Show on Sept. 14-15, KVQG Show the next weekend Sept. 19-21 and then the following Saturday Sept. 28 Gorge QG in Grand Falls presents their show. All details are on the sidebar. I hope you'll start making plans now to fill your car with friends for a day trip to support our fellow Guilds and see their work.
Just a reminder, if you were planning to enter a quilt or two in the KV Show in Quispamsis, their deadline is coming up quickly- registrations must be received by this Friday Aug. 23. I have the forms if you need one- contact me and I will email it to you.
Also note the Guilde Acadienne Show in late October in Inkerman - part way between Tracadie-Sheila and Shippegan. This guild has only been going a few years and this is their second show - let's show them our support!
If you know of any other Shows this fall, please let me know and I'll add them to our list.
