These blocks will be on display on October 1 and will then be made into a quilt for Canada’s Sesquicentennial year. Bring your creativity with you!

Fall Luncheon at The Cove. We are pleased to welcome Carol Darou from the Lanark Quilt Guild as our guest speaker over lunch.  All are welcome to hear Carol’s story and enjoy a time with friends. Contact Mary Anne Bishop at thepamperedladybug @ if you wish to attend only the lunch.
