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.
