A New Home for 'Surviving January'


 I recently sold my Surviving January quilt to the folks at the Eddie Hotel and Farm, here in Prince Edward County.
This is it, hanging just inside the front door.
I couldn't ask for a better home for it ... or a more stunning setting!
It looks fabulous there!

MY NEW BACKPACK SHOW … ‘I Have Something to Say: speak your truth, even if your voice shakes’

 I am back to taking bookings for my Back Pack Show!!

Yeah!!

My Doctors have given me the go ahead, since there is no actual travelling involved.  

So far, I have been booked for Halifax, NS … Lethbridge, AB … Orange County, California … and maybe Haliburton School of Art and Design (if it runs next summer).

I’ve revamped my Back Pack Show and added many of my newer quilts.  After the year that I’ve had, my quilts more than ever, seem free to speak my truth … :-)

I’d love to visit your Guild, Shop, or group!

Cost is just $250 and you are free to invite as many paying guests as you'd like!

You can find more information about this show here.

I Have Something to Say!

I am SO excited to be doing a version of my NEW BackPack Show as part of this event.

Of course we will follow all Covid Protocols, but I’ll get to see you in person … and you’ll get to see and touch quilts!
Here’s hoping that at least a few of you are in the area and able to attend!
😊
