QUILT and RUG GLORY Renowned ‘Stories in Stitches’ Exhibition
Every second year historic and beautiful St. Paul’s church in downtown Charlottetown is the place for Eastern Canada’s most dramatic show of quilts, hooked rugs and artistic needlework.
The display is stunning: close to 100 quilts are set out on the pews and railings of the church, against a background of richly warm woodwork, lit by the colourful stained-glass windows. The parish hall, a few steps away, has scores of hooked-rug creations displayed by PEI’s Island Matters group of hookers. There are also artisan demonstrations.
The show attracts over 1200 visitors, many of them cruise-ship passengers who come to experience the gorgeous early autumn of Prince Edward Island. For just $5 they spend an hour or two soaking up the glory of fabric creations in a magnificent setting.
This is not a sale, but some presenters do allow subsequent purchase of their works. Inquiries about entering pieces are welcome until mid-August.
See the photographic display at www.stpaulschurch.ca – Look for ‘Stories in Stitches IV.’
