Summer Quilt Shows...

It's been a while since we've had an "armchair tour" to a Quilt Show. So sit back and get comfy... click here for a tour of the recent AQS Quilt Show and Contest in Knoxville TN. You will be able to view all the Award winners, plus there is a video at the bottom if you scroll down. (You'll even see one Canadian Winner! Congrats to Joyce O'Connell of Ontario.)

Speaking of Shows, remember there is a listing of summer Shows in our vicinity on the sidebar at right. The next ones coming up are the Maine State Show in Augusta, and the following weekend, much closer to home a nice little Show and Tea in Cambridge Narrows. "Stories Behind the Quilts", held in the Cambridge Narrows United Church, is just one event during the Life at the Lakes weekend. A full schedule of events offers something for everyone: Art Show and Sale, Wine-tastings, Herb Garden walk, Lavender and Hops Farm tour, Antique car show, Garden Tours, Corn Boil, Horseshoes and Games, and more!!

If you would like a little weekend getaway, why not head down to "the Narrows"? If you enjoy camping, the MicMac Tent and Trailer Park is the most accessible (488-2511), and the Cambridge Narrows Campgrounds and Bed and Breakfast is also nearby (488-2000).
