Tell Us..

If you are interested in hanging a quilt at the St. Jacob's Schoolhouse during the week of the Quilt Festival, please let us know. New exhibitors are welcome! As there is no security in the building a 'hot body' from our Quilt Board sleeps in the schoolhouse. Stories have been few- squirrels could be heard chasing nuts during the night and night invaders from Drayton Theatre came to pick up a prop at midnight. Scary stuff.
