It's Time for Colour!...

This is the name of a travelling quilt show by the Canadian Quilters Association/Association canadienne de la courtepointe (CQA/ACC).

This is the 1st time they have done a travelling show and Mrs P's will be hosting the show on Wednesday, April 29th during normal business hours, 10 am to 4pm.  

If you check the CQA/ACC website or blog, there is info on the award winning quilters (Master Quilters)  and some photos of the quilts.  You may purchase a quilt via that link and any proceeds will go to the Children's Wish Foundation of Canada that are raised by this event. http://www.canadianquilter.com/news-events.php?ID=60

The quilts are 12 x16 inches in size.  There are 2 shows travelling so you may not see them all, but there are 18 or 19 planned to be shown in Amherst at Mrs Pugsley's Emporium Inc.

If the quilt you wish to purchase is not available, they have made greeting cards and those will be available at the travelling show for $4 each or 10 for $35.  You can also order them off their website as well.  

Up to thirty six (36) quilts in total will travel throughout Canada and are shown together, one last time at the national Quilt Canada Show, held this year in Lethbridge, Alberta from June 4 to 6, 2015. Then the quilts go to their new owners!   The travelling show, showcases, about 18 of the 36 quilts at any given time!

This is a National event that has been brought to Amherst, NS.  I thank the CQA/ACC for having this bold idea and bringing it to life.   I'm very excited to see the 18 quilts that will travel to Mrs P's! (One of the quilts will be coming back to Amherst after national show! ) 

Remember to mark your calendars for April 29th- next week-and drop in to see It's Time for Colour!
