THE RED VERSION OF GARDEN POPPIES HAS SOLD!
NOTE: In Canada, there is an ongoing interruption of Post Office services – no mail is being accepted at the Post Offices and no mail is being delivered either. This frustating turn of events is expected to work itself out by the middle of next week.
I’ve noticed people are starting to search for information on the Quilt Show and Sale held each fall in Hall’s Harbour, so decided I’d better post on it in lots of time for people to start making plans to visit that weekend and/or exhibit their quilts.
QUILTS AT THE HARBOUR 13th ANNUAL QUILT SHOW AND SALE:
will be held on Saturday September 24 from 10AM to 5PM and Sunday September 25 from Noon until 5PM
at: Hall’s Harbour United Baptist Church, 885 West Hall’s Harbour Road at the corner of Sullivan Road
Admission by Free Will offering and refreshments are free. There is expected to be a bakesale as well and this is always a crowd pleaser!
For quilters, we always have a “gently used” table full of books, magazines, notions and loads of patterns and fabric – always very tempting!
We welcome quilters to exhibit their items either for sale or for viewing only and we welcome exhibitors from outside our immediate area – the more the merrier!!!
We are expecting lots of quilts and this year there will be some vintage and antique ones for sale as well some vintage embellished bedlinens, both North American and imported from France.
Quilters are already planning and working on quilts that will be on show, so it is expected to be an interesting weekend.
There is ample parking, bus tours are welcome, and the building is wheelchair accessible.
All donations at the door, and a 20% commision on all sales is given to the church and we are usually able to raise between $600 and $700 which helps to support and sustain this lovely small and historic church built in the 1840’s and actively serving the community to this day.
For more information on how to enter your quilts for the show, check my blog: http://www.quiltingwithjanet.blogspot.com
