Day 2

Exciting things happened at The Schoolhouse Theatre this morning. Twenty- seven little children from the St. Jacobs Mennonite Church came to visit. They walked through identifying objects they liked. One little girl spotted a dandelion..and she was bang-on! The children loved their Marble quilt..and had fun finding his/her own. The best part was enjoying a cup of water with lemon, sugar and a delicious snack.
The blooper opened up.What an amazing flower!

Alias Grace visits Volunteer Tea

Kathy Langill was commissioned to make a quilt to resemble the quilt referenced in Alias Grace
written by Margaret Atwood to be used by Netflicks. She shared highlights, frustrations, conflicting visions with a non-quilter boss and highlights. This six-part series will be aired starting September 25, 2017. Watch for Kathy's hand and her quilt.
