A feast and inspiration for the eyes and a great Mother’s Day weekend outing!

Members of the Ottawa Valley Quilter’s Guild will showcase their talents with a wide variety of bed quilts, wall hangings, and wearable art. "The quilts our members do are beautiful," says Alice McKay, Co-Chair of the Quilt Show. "This Show is a great opportunity for our members to share their work and passion with the public. Visitors to the Show will come away with a new appreciation of this art and craft."

"We’re trying some new things this year that we think will appeal to quilters and non-quilters," says Albertina Pianarosa, Co-Chair of the 2009 Quilt Show. "There will be special exhibits in partnership with some wonderful local groups. The All Dolled Up group will share their love of art doll making and the Out–Of–The–Box Fibre Artists share some of their stunning fibre art creations. ‘The Ruby Reds’, a Prescott Chapter in the Red Hat Society, will display everything red & purple."

A line-up of fabulously talented Artists in Residence, whose work has been admired nationally and internationally, includes:

  • Beth Cameron – humour in quilts
  • Karen Goetzinger – abstracted landscapes
  • Linda Palaisy – creative freedom with sewing machine
  • Elaine Quehl – quilt artist, teacher, dyer
  • Edwina Sutherland – figures in textiles and wool fibre
  • Liane Thiry–Smith – wearables, hangings, felted items

The Festival of Quilts 2009 Show will be held in the Ray Kinsella Arena of the RA Centre, which has free parking and is wheelchair accessible. Refreshments are also available on site.
