Having kicked back for a couple of weeks or so I’ve finally gotten my figures pulled together. I want to thank Linda for her lovely comment about her trip up to Hall’s Harbour for the show – it reflects many comments received at the show by people who came from the Halifax Dartmouth area or from farther afield.
We raised about $750 for the church – our best so far, and also sold three full sized quilts and many smaller quilted items. The money raised will stay within our small community and the interest generated in our tourist destination area and in our local culture, reflects the win/win situation of practicing sustainable rural development.
I want to remind everyone that we will be holding a one day show on Friday July 1, 2010 called Celebrate Canada! in conjunction with the many Canada Day events in the community, and as usual, our two day Quilts at the Harbour 12 Show and Sale will take place on Saturday September 24 and Sunday September 25, 2010 both shows at the United Baptist Church on West Hall’s Harbour Road.
