Most suc­cess­ful quilt show ever at Em­manuel United

Sherbrooke Record - - BROME COUNTY - By Louise Smith

On Thurs­day Sa­man­tha and Doug Jenne spent many hours putting up the quilts to get ready for the two-day show, but their long hours were ap­pre­ci­ated. A record num­ber of ar­ti­cles were on dis­play, 75 items, and a record at­ten­dance was set. Over the two days more than 140 peo­ple came to see the dis­play of colour­ful quilts. Vis­i­tors came from as far away as Sher­brooke and the west end of Mon­treal.

There were new ar­ti­cles as well as heir­loom quilts. Some had sto­ries at­tached. Many had fol­lowed pat­terns but some were one-of-a-kind de­sign artis­tic quilts. All had in­volved many hours of work.

Light re­fresh­ments were avail­able and peo­ple sat to chat while seated in an area bor­dered by quilts of many colours. The show will be on again next April.

Canada was well cel­e­brated.

Peo­ple en­joyed a so­cial hour while ad­mir­ing the work of many.

Each quilt had a story to tell.
