Waiting for the show!!!

After doing all the publicity we can, we now have to wait patiently for next weekend to see if we will be a success. Grace and I have delivered and posted posters and flyers, exhorted friends and acquaintences to show quilts and have gone through our caches of books, notions, fabric and patterns to see what we can put on the new-to-you table. Our friends the Bernina Lady - Jeanne Huntley, and Gayle and Glenice at the friendly fabric store (Avonport Discount) will have all sorts of goodies to look at as well as purchase and I'm going to go to Avonport this week to drop off my faithful 35 year old Bernina for servicing and pick up Jeanne's publicity brochures and the pieces she and friends wish to display. Suzanne and her mother Myrtle will be bringing armloads of their yummy quilts, as will many other quilters from near and far.
Now, all we need is for lots of people to come out - and it's the best time of year to go for a run in the country - the weather is great, the leaves are turning and the tourist attractions and great restaurants are less crowded now. So do take a run out and see us next weekend at the West Hall's Harbour United Baptist Church - the church dates to the 1840's and little has been changed in that time - lovely faux-grained and cream enamelled pews, and other lovely church furnishings. We will be at the church on Saturday Sept 29, 2007 from 10AM until 5PM and on Sunday September 30, 2007 from Noon until 5PM. To reach Hall's Harbour, take #359 north out of Kentville and go until you reach the Bay of Fundy. Go through the village, past the Lobster Pound and on up the hill two kms on the paved road until you reach the church - a white building on your right at the corner of the Sullivan Road. We will have a bright red white and blue OPEN banner outside. Admission is by freewill offering, the yummy refreshments are free and there will be a bake table and a Quilter's gently used table in addition to all the lovely quilts.
We hope to see you there, and maybe we'll even get some bus tours - we had a large group from Newfoundland several years aho.
