Nick Smith Centre, 77 James St., Arnprior ON
Canada 150 Quilt
The show is in Arena A, the arena just in front of the main door at the Nick Smith Centre in Arnprior. The Canada 150 exhibit of approximately 16 quilts made by eastern Ontario quilt guilds, and tea room are located in the room to the right of the main entrance door.
The show will feature quilts of all sizes - bed quilts, lap quilts, baby quilts, preemie quilts for the little babies in the Rich Little Special Care Unit at the Ottawa Hospital Civic Campus, other quilted items such as tablerunners, wearables, wall hangings and bags, as well as a dedicated Christmas section. See Our Quilts for photos of quilts made by guild members.
Clothespins are attached to the quilts so that you can see the back without touching the quilts - show etiquette is no touching! There will also be volunteers walking around with white gloves should you need assistance, or want a closer look at something.
While at the show, don't forget to visit the vendor mall in the arena with shops from around the region offering their newest treasures.
There is a lot to see and there will be chairs in the arena for you to take a break. Plan to have a longer break and meet new friends in our tea room, where you can have a light lunch, drink, and dessert of homemade pie.
