As I turned to go back out, I realised I missed a spectacular part of the centre.

Quilt by Muriel Horsnell of Weston, NS
entered into Atlantic Winter Fair 1971
|close ups of the quilt|
It's a remarkable piece of art. The tag on it - from the Atlantic Winter Fair 1971 - states it came in 2nd place! It was entered in; Quilt, any other kind (Artex Liquid Embroidery) and donated by Sally Horsnell to the Berwick Museum Society. It makes you wonder what 1st place looked like!
I hope you have the opportunity to enjoy this quilt in person at the Apple Capital Interpretive Centre in Berwick, NS.
On a related note, the Cumberland County Exhibition-located in Oxford, NS, is now on and I'm planning to get there before it ends Sat night and see what is on exhibit in the handicraft section. Have you been to your local fair lately?
