June brings our Annual Garden Quilt Show. This is year 20! How did that happen?? The show begins at 10 a.m. and continues until 2 p.m. If it is a rainy day the quilts will be displayed in St. Paul’s Church next door. There will be a lunch available downstairs in the church. As usual, admission to the show is free, but you can bring a donation for the Richmond Food Bank. There will be some quilts for sale.
Scissor sharpening on site starts about 11 a.m. Bring your items in a bag with your name on it and drop them with John when you arrive and they will be ready when you leave. He does knives and garden tools, axes and most anything else!
Quilts for the show need to be brought to the shop June 14, 15 and 16. The shop will be open on all three days for drop off of quilts. We cannot guarantee that anything brought on Saturday will be included in the show. Pick up day for your quilts is Tuesday, June 20.
This year the artists in residence at the show are sisters Patricia McCourt and Arlene Smyth. These two ladies do amazing wool applique. They will have a display of their work and also will be demonstrating their skills.
By request, Charlie Brimley the wood carver will be in attendance at the show. He will have some items for sale as well as a display of his work.
There will be the used book sale and a craft table for our chosen charity, CANHAVE.(Canadians helping Aids Orphans through Education.)
We still need volunteers to help with the show. Come and join the fun of the day.
Other events include:
A Card Making Workshop is planned for Tuesday, June 20.
Tracy has prepared “Another Scrap Quilt” to help deplete your stash! Join her on Saturday June 24 for a fun morning.
The shop will be closed for the first week of July for staff holidays.
Happy Canada Day and Happy Quilting!
