Cornwall Quilters Guild are celebrating 20 years if quilting together. To showcase the members talents, they are hosting a two day show, “Quilts on the Seaway” at Trinity Anglican Church, 105 Second St. West, on Friday April 19th from 1pm to 8pm and Saturday, April 20th from 10am to 4pm.
We have eleven vendors participating, selling quilting related goods. They are local and from as far away as Brockville and Ottawa. There is a Boutique where the public can purchase hand made items made by guild members. Over 180 items including quilts, jackets and wall hangings will be on display and the public will be invited to choose their favourite piece.
Draws will be held for many door prizes and a canteen will provide refreshments to purchase for a light lunch or a cup of tea and a snack. Guild members will be available to answer questions.
Everyone is welcome. Admission is $6.00. Our guild meets the third Monday of each month at 7 pm, from September to May, at St. Matthews Lutheran Church, 1509 Second St. West.
We have 65 members who range from beginners to expert quilters. We make quilts for Hospice Cornwall, St Josephs Villa and Habitat for Humanity as well as for our family and friends. We meet for a full day once a month, where we enjoy quilting and visiting with each other. We always welcome visitors and new members to our guild.
