Quilt Camp At Sea

Tuesday, August 18th is going to be a very exciting day for the quilting community in Halifax!The New England Quilt Camp at Sea Cruise ship will be docking for the day and Fabricville on Bayer’s Road is pulling out all the stops to extend them a hearty Maritime welcome. Fabricville has planned a full day of quilt displays, demonstrations and a terrific sale of goods. Members of the Mayflower Quilt Guild (to which I belong) will be on hand in the store to welcome visitors. The demonstrations cover a wide range of topics and skill levels. Karen Henry will kick off the demos at 930 and she is sure to wow everyone with her incredible work. I will be there from 11 a.m. - noon, signing copies of Canadian Heritage Quilting. The quilts from the book will be on display with me, as well as some others. I invite all quilters in the area to stop in and say hello. More details are on this poster, and in the ad in Saturday’s Halifax Herald.

The demonstrations end around 4 pm, but the specials run till store closing at 6. It’s a great time to stock up on supplies for fall retreats and workshops as all quilting cottons and batting sold by the meter are buy 1 meter get 1 free. Notions under $12.99 are 50% off and all other notions are 15% off, including Rowenta irons.
The event will take place at Fabricville, The Village At Bayer’s Road, 7071 Bayer’s Road, Halifax. If you need to call for directions, the number is 902- 443-9675. Hope to see you there!
