We had a wonderful time at the Home on the Farm Quilt Show & British Tea - with over 176 entries and a Tea Room and vendors. There were cloth quilts and barn quilts. Thank you to everyone that contributed to the success of this show.
For anyone that missed the show - we will have the quilts at the Quilt Tent for the International Plowing Match in Kemptville from September 20 - 24, 2022. Be sure to get a quilt ticket for the raffle ticket.
We are looking forward to seeing everyone for our 2022-2023 Guild year. Please note that we post most frequently to our Facebook group.
