Kathy K. Wylie – Our Special Guest

She lectures and teaches all over the country at guilds, shops and quilt shows and is a CQA/ACC Certified Quilt Judge. Her work has been featured in magazines, and her designs are available as individual patterns as well as in her book “Sewflakes: Papercut Appliqué Quilts.”

On both Friday and Saturday, Kathy will provide a formal tour of her quilts.
Her quilt tour times are scheduled for 10:45 to 11:30 and 1:30 to 2:15 .
Antique and Vintage Quilt Turning
The Quilt Show has borrowed antique and vintage quilts from guild members and from the community. Antique quilts are over 100 years old and vintage made between 1920 and 1965. These quilts are usually made by hand. They are in odd sizes that do not fit modern beds.
Each quilt is presented with it’s unique story. Then the quilt will be turned down and another is revealed.
It is our hope that these quilts may inspire you and perhaps evoke memories of quilts from your past.
On both Friday and Saturday, Vintage and Antique Quilt Turning is scheduled for:
12:00 to 12:45 and 2:45 to 3:15
This is an Outreach Committee initiative. We have three raffle quilts. Tickets are $4/each or 3/$10. All proceeds go to South Muskoka Memorial Hospital Foundation & Hospice Muskoka.
We are so fortunate to have our café hosted by the Ladies’ Auxiliary of the Bracebridge Royal Canadian Legion Branch 161. All proceeds will go to the Royal Canadian Legion.
For your enjoyment … there will be a selection of sandwiches, muffins, treats and refreshments.
