February 10th, 2021 (Zoom Virtual Meeting planned):

  • Feature Presentation by Pauline Grondin “Piecing Together Canada’s History Through Quilts”. To quote Pauline, a professional storyteller and historical interpreter, “No thread running through Canada’s history is stronger or more consistent than in (quilts) their use as links between women and their female descendants. Generations of women were united by the quilts that were the works of their hands and their hearts.” Pauline is going to delight us with her stories and anecdotes about the history of quilting and show us quilts from days gone by.
