Redesigned by Quiltworx

This year, Judy and Judel came up to Heritage Park for the special display of Quiltworx quilts.  They also put on a display of their own of their Red and White quilts, many of which are featured in their Redesigned:  In Red, White & Black book.  Following the show, they very kindly lent us the quilts, which we hung in the store for the following 5 weeks.  It was a stunning display, but in case you live away or weren’t able to see them at the park or in the store, below are some pictures:

Thanks again to Judith and Judel for coming up for the Festival of Quilts and for allowing us to share with you their beautiful creations!

And by the way, we offer a Niemeyer club at our store on Saturday evenings.  If you would like more information on this, please see our class and club listings.

With a Touch of Holland

Ria Timmermans is a customer of ours from Holland.  She stays in touch with our store regularly, either by visiting or emailing with us.  When she isn’t in Canada for a visit, her sister-in-law, Riet, comes in and picks up what she needs.   Riet lives here in Calgary.

This year, both couples are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversaries.  For the occasion, Ria made Riet a gift using our All Around Canada pattern (our winning Trans-Canada Block Party design) and the Northcott Canadian Sesquicentennial fabrics.  But she changed it up a bit, and added “A Touche of Holland”.

I think she did a lovely job, and made a unique celebration of their anniversaries and their joint friendships and heritage.

Bravo Ria for such a lovely wall hanging.  We look forward to Riet bringing it in for a personal viewing after the party!
