Our Bou­tique had all kinds of beau­ti­ful ar­ti­cles for sale in­clud­ing; quilts, both large and small, quilted tote bags, oven mitts, pot hold­ers and loads of other ar­ti­cles. plus lots of Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions.

Down­stairs there was a bou­tique of used books, ma­te­rial and other items that were not be­ing used by other mem­bers. Paulette Beaudette and Miche­line Tousig­nant were tak­ing regis­tra­tions for a class to be given in Oc­to­ber and Novem­ber in As­cot.

Cen­ter de Cou­ture Con­seil rep­re­sen­ta­tive was giv­ing demos of the ma­chines that she brought to show off. And of course there was the shop called L’ar­ti­sane and Fils D’amis which had books, ma­te­rial, no­tions and nec­es­sary ar­ti­cles needed for quil­ters.

But, most im­por­tant is the tea ser­vice (tea, cof­fee and cook­ies, muffins and other dain­ties) fur­nished by the St. Ge­orge’s Church Women’s Guile, which was ap­pre­ci­ated by the guests and the quil­ters. Es­pe­cially when you had a hard time de­cid­ing which quilt you liked the most, you could sit and con­tem­plate all the beau­ti­ful quilts be­fore de­cid­ing.

There was an ex­hi­bi­tion up­stairs of baby and youth quilts that are to be given to the Dea­con Silas Nabini­ca­boo of the Anglican Church in Sch­ef­ferville (Kawawichik­la­mach) Has­paki First Na­tion Com­mu­nity to be distributed to ba­bies and youths in the com­mu­nity. Be­lieve it or not there were 47 quilts in all, some were from the Len­noxville Quil­ter’s over 30, but some peo­ple were bring them all day Fri­day as their gift to the com­mu­nity. Thank you one and all; It was re­ally a treat to see.
