UPCOMING QUILT SHOW: Quilts at the Harbour 13th Annual Show and Sale


September will be here before we know it, and today I was revising my publicity documents for our 13th annual Quilts at the Harbour Show and Sale, and getting ready to print and distribute them. I thought it would be a nice idea to give you all an early heads up about the show, and some details:


September 24 (Saturday) from 10AM until 4PM
September 25 (Sunday) from 12 Noon until 4PM
Hall's Harbour United Baptist Church
885 W Hall's Harbour Road at Sullivan Road
(go through the harbour and climb the hill past the Lobster Pound. Stay on the paved road. The church will be on your right, facing the sideroad in about a kilometre or half a mile)

Admission is by freewill offering and free refreshments will be available

There will be many quilts and quilted items for sale, as well as those that are on display only.

For avid quilters, the "Gently Used" table is always a very tempting delight

And of course we will have the traditional B AKESALE to go with the show!

The church itself is a beautiful vintage 1840's structure with a cemetery that fascinates geneologists. Most of the original church furniture is intact and cherished. Ask to see the antique collection box on a pole - any of us will be happy to show it; and Richard, who is a deacon of the church, an historian and last but not least the proprietor of the bake table, can give you many details including lots of leads if you are researching family connections.

Here's a picture of the outside of the church so you know what you are looking for - we will also have a banner and a sign out.

If you wish to enter quilts in the show, come by the church on Friday evening between 5:30 and 7PM and we'll take your entries - specify if the items are for sale or just on display - all quilters are very welcome to show - you don't have to be from Hall's Harbour. Bring two copies of your list and leave one with us so there are no errors at pickup time, which is around 4 on Sunday. Again if that time is not good for you we can work something out in advance.
If the Friday evening drop off time is inconvenient, just email me: and we can arrange something outside those hours.

IF YOU JUST WANT TO BROWSE SOME LOVELY QUILTS, then we welcome you - you're in for a treat and this year I expect some older, vintage quilts and bedlinens for sale as well. Bus tours are welcome - not long ago we had folks on a bus tour from Newfoundland!

There are always lots of other local activities going on, fine dining is still available and the weather is usually very stable - fall colours will be lovely too!

It looks so charming! I went to a sweet little quilt show in Albert Bridge, Cape Breton a few weeks ago, held in a quaint little church. I wonder how far away I am? (I'm not too far from Port Hawkesbury.) ~karen
