Armstrong Quilters put their talent on display

The Armstrong Quilters host a quilt show and the food bank benefits

  • Nov. 3, 2017 10:30 p.m.

Enjoy beautiful quilts, a bite or two of cheese and a drive through the country as the Armstrong Quilters present their inaugural quilt show, Quilts from the Heart.

The show takes place Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Armstrong Town Centre Mall, at Pleasant Valley Quilting.

“We will have many quilts on display and the group has been working on two separate challenges,” said Susan Wilson, with Armstrong Quilters. “The first is for Canada’s 150th birthday. The second is a cheese challenge, where participants are making a small quilt related to some type of cheese.

“Why cheese? Cheese, It’s a Natural Cheese Festival is also happening in Armstrong on November 4 at Centennial Hall. Our cheese challenge quilts will be on display at the cheese festival and are not to be missed.”

Both challenges will be voted on by coin donation. The challenge quilt that raises the most money for the food bank will be declared the winner.

“However, the true winner will be the food bank,” said Wilson.

Not enough to do? The Barn Quilt Trail now has 22 blocks painted and at least 20 installed. Also on this weekend is Christmas in The Country at Hullcar Hall, home of the friendship circle barn quilt.

“So plan a trip to Armstrong Saturday, plan on spending time enjoying quilts, cheese, a country drive and a bit of Christmas shopping,” said Wilson.
