It’s hard to believe the summer is long gone and the annual quilt show and sale in Hall’s Harbour is fast approaching.
The show – Quilts at the Harbour 12th Annual Show and Sale will be taking place next weekend at the West Hall’s Harbour United Baptist Church at 885 West Hall’s Harbour Road. Enter Hall’s Harbour via Highway 359 and follow the road past the wharf and around past the Lobster Pound and stay on the paved road, travelling about 2 km until you see the small white church on your right, facing the sideroad, Sullivan Road – that comes in from the west.
The show will be Saturday Sept 25 from 10 until 5PM and on Sunday from Noon until 5PM. There will be, as always, a wonderful display of quilts, many of which will be for sale; and in addition in the fellowship room there will be tables of quilters’ gently used items as well as a bake table and delicious refreshments. A freewill offering is encouraged. Twenty percent of all proceeds from the sale of items at the show will be going to the church, as will the proceeeds from the bake sale and freewill offering.
This is also a wonderful opportunity to view this lovingly maintained heritage church dating to the 1840’s with original furnishings, and if it’s a nice day many will also stroll in the cemetery and visit the graves of the early settlers who are buried here.
Come out and meet a group of friendly welcoming people who are keen to talk quilts, sustainable communities and heritage sites - it’s always nice to see what other people are doing in the way of quiltmaking – lots of ideas, books, patterns, fabric and other notions too!
See you there!
That’s it for now
