If you are in Halifax this Saturday, November 29th, I will be around signing copies of Canadian Heritage Quilting. From 12-2, look for me at Coles in the Hfx Shopping Centre and from 3-5 at Chapters in Bayers Lake.
Those of you unable to get out to shop may enjoy doing so from the comfort of your computer chair. There is a new site called Quilter’s Net, which is the brainchild of Nova Scotia quilter Bev Crouse. Bev writes, "The Quilters’ Net showcases quality handmade Canadian quilts and quilted accessories, all in one convenient internet market, complete with shopping basket. Our products have all been individually crafted by skilled Canadian Quilters and, when purchased, will be shipped directly from the Quilter, to you." There are some beautiful pieces, including Christmas designs, and more added regularly as the site grows. Be sure to check back often.
Another interesting spot is Truly Canadian Made. This site showcases a variety of hand made products . Here you will find "the webshops of artists and artisans, galleries and cooperatives from across Canada displaying handmade art: from glowing glasswork, to finely worked gold, silver, and gemstone jewellery. Decorate your world with unique pottery, paintings, drawings, photos, graphic art, woodcraft, sculpture, and metal art. Relax with colorful textiles, quilts and knits, luxurious soap and candles, and gourmet food and drink. Worldclass Art - Truly Canadian Made."
I do hope you will be able to drop by on Saturday to say hi. I am looking forward to meeting up with a lot of Mayflower Quilt Guild members.
And...for those of you doing your shopping here in Amherst, be sure to drop into Mrs. Pugsley's Emporium and put your name in to win the Flannel Nap Quilt shown in the book. Because of last week's snow, we decided to run the draw a little longer. There are also signed copies of Canadian Heritage Quilting both there and across the way at Pugsley's Pharmacy.
