SETTLERS' VILLAGE QUILTERS
First Quilt Show 1995:
An excerpt from the Feb. 14, 1995 Kawartha Piecemakers Quilt Guild Meeting Minutes taken at the Henderson House KSV states the following:
"Anne Cleland announced that a Quilt Show will be held on Sept. 9th or 16th. This will be a joint effort between the Guild and KSV. Anne will chair a co-ordinating committee and several members volunteered to assist. ...... Details about the exact date, insurance, merchants mall, sale, etc. will be discussed at the March 14th meeting." At the March meeting the name, "Harvest of Quilts" was established for the quilt show and cost of Admission was set at $3.00."
The Harvest of Quilts was held on Saturday, September 9th at Kawartha Settlers' Village and was presented by The Village Quilters, Kawartha Piecemakers and the Kawartha Region Arts & Heritage Society.
Our Guild hosted a Quilt Show September 11-13 throughout the historic buildings in the Kawartha Settlers' Village.
The profits of our 2015 raffle quilt were shared with the Bobcaygeon Food Bank and the Women's Resource Centre.
