CLASS 90: QUILTS


SPECIAL QUILT SHOW for 175th Celebration of The Richmond Fair!
As the Fair celebrates 175 years in the village, we would like to display 175 quilts! (display only). We hope to display several categories of quilts, different techniques, and quilting accessories. There will also be exhibits from several groups and opportunities for visitors to try their hand at quilting. We will also be raffling the quilt made from the Challenge Blocks people have made in the last year.

For an event as spectacular as this, we are in need of many quilts, help with planning, to set-up, and ‘white-gloving’ at the Fair. Financial donations/sponsors are also sought to help with the cost of holding such a show. If you are able to help support this great event, please contact Alison Tranter (613) 838-5347 or Sheri Kavanagh (613) 601-2296.
