The Festival begins!
The schedule for this very busy week is posted on the Festival website. For me, today will include the final packing up for the workshops and attending a session with amazing quilter Laurie Swim this afternoon. It will be a thrill to see her beautiful works of art in person. After that is set-up for the first workshop and the display for tonight's signing of Canadian Heritage Quilting at the official opening reception. This will be held at Tantramar Theatre from 7-8:30. At this display, I will unveil the new piece I designed with the special fabric which Dayle's Department Store brought in just for the Festival. No hints, except to say it's a wild one! I'll show you tomorrow, when the piece goes on display at Dayle's for the duration of the Festival. Hope to see you tonight!
