How much is that writer in the window?

Our shop was one of the participating shops in the Storefront Writing Challenge on Saturday, organized by the Thousand Islands Writers Festival. Wendy seen here, and Melanie, in the other window,(sorry Melanie no photo) spent Saturday in our windows with their laptops writing a story in any genre. Participating writers were given the same prompt and had to include the prompt somewhere in their story. I can't wait to read what these talented local writers came up with. You can read completed works later in September--I'll keep you posted.

Quilters from Italy

We had a visit from two quilters from Genoa, Italy at the end of the summer, who were delighted to find a quilt shop on their trip to Canada. There are no language barriers when you are a quilter!

Erica's Quilt

One Saturday this summer Erica made her first quilt top at the shop , with a little help from Mom and I. This colourful quilt was hand-quilted by Erica and completed for a friend's new baby. Congratulations on your first quilt!
