Two Local Shows...

Hello everyone! Just thought I should bring to your attention two shows in our local area. At Charlotte Street School, in the Penny Gallery in June and July is an exhibit of quilts by local quilter Solveig Wells. Solveig spoke to our Guild back in 2008 or so. She passed away in March of this year and her family has put this display together to honour and celebrate her life.
In 2006-2007 she created a series of quilts entitled Katrina Recovery Quilts to express the personal and collective experience of Hurricane Katrina. These quilts were created with fabrics recovered from the hurricane debris. These quilts as well as others which reflect her extensive travels are on display - the Gallery, open daily from 9a.m. -10p.m. is on the first floor of the Charlotte Street Arts Centre and is free to visitors.
On July 27 and 28 there will be a celebration of her life held in the auditorium of the Arts Centre, with a reception from noon -1p.m. on the 27th. All the quilts will be moved from the Penny Gallery on the 26th to the Auditorium for the celebration on the 27th and 28th. The 28th is the final day for the exhibit.

This coming weekend you can attend a Quilt Show being held in conjunction with a celebration of Maugerville's 250th Anniversary. Sponsored by the Maugerville Women's Institute, it will be open
Lois showing some of Kings Landing's antique quilts.
June 27-29, from noon-7p.m. on Thursday, 10a.m.-7p.m. on Friday and 10a.m.-4p.m. on Saturday, at the Maugerville Baptist Church on Peters Road. This is immediately after the Auction Centre (on your left going downriver).Watch for the signs along the highway. Admission is only $3.00 and refreshments will be served. On Friday afternoon at 2 pm, there will be a Trunk Show of antique quilts from the Kings Landing Collection, by Lois MacDonald. 

These events are local- why not support  them both?
