2010 Airing of the Quilts and SALE

Yesterday was our Airing of the Quilts and annual sale which was a huge success. We had three rooms full of quilts by not only our teachers but also local quilters. Over 50 quilts were on display from quilters who had taken classes with us over the past year and other quilts they have been working on. Our teachers Kay Haerland, Jennie Osborne and Christine Sands were on hand to talk to everyone about their upcoming classes. We were also fortunate to have with us also Thea from Bernina who demonstrated the sewing machines and overlockers for us. The local newspaper came by to take photos of the day so keep an eye out in the paper for some photos! Thank-you to everyone who helped make this day a success.
