The following three quilts were on display at Festival Headquarters, and were made in a class taught  by Phyllis Cameron who this year led a workshop entitled "A Maze Of Colour."  The quilt was designed by Colleen Wise and appears in the book "Casting Shadows." This first version was sewn by Joan Blakney.
This quilt was stitched by Lynne Trerice.

Stitched by Joan Ralph.
Dayle's Department Store had a large display of quilts owned by the staff.

Karen Neary's Free Motion Quilting For The Absolutely Terrified dispelled the fear and produced relaxed and happy quilters.

There are more pictures from the workshops on Karen's blog.
The three day workshop on Story Telling and the Art of Rug Hooking with Deanne Fitzpatrick and Sheree Fitch was full and exciting. Thirty seven people from across North America gathered together to create rugs based on their own personal stories. The course was a mixture of design, creativity, story telling and rug hooking. More on the workshop may be found on Deanne's website.

These quilts were part of Karen Neary's show held at Trinity St. Stephens United Church.
