43rd Annual Quilt & Fibre Fair Taking Place July 9th to 13th

The Albert County Museum is proud to present the 43rd Annual Quilt & Fibre Arts Show and Sale from July 9th to 13th, 2019.  This one of the longest running quilt shows and sales in Atlantic Canada!  This year’s theme is “Christmas in July” and in addition to nearly 80 quilts on for sale and display, the show also offers a variety of different fibre arts.  Knitting, weaving, hooking, cross stitching, and a variety of beautifully sewn pieces are all available for purchase and all items in the show are locally made and crafted.  Daily workshops and demonstrations are also included in this wonderful event. 

“Quilting has a rich history in this area and there continues to be local interest in the art form” says Janet Clouston, Managing Director of the Albert County Museum.  “This year the show is celebrating its 43rd anniversary and ranks as an historic event for the area as well as the Museum’s biggest fundraiser.” Clouston added, “Without the dedication and hard work of the volunteers that put the Quilt Show together, we wouldn’t be able to experience such a successful community building event. “
