The venue, Centerville Baptist Church, was absolutely incredible.
The church is relatively new and everything is on one floor and seems to go on for miles and miles. There were quilts, rugs and related hand crafted items in almost every room and I believe there were over 500 items in total on display.
It really was a sight to behold and totally overwhelming!

I can't imagine the amount of work that went into staging a show of this size. It was very well organized and everything was presented so beautifully.

Beautiful quilts, rugs and good food...is there a better combination? Oh, and I have to mention that there were 4 vendors there selling their wares as well.
Darlene from A Needle Pulling Thread Quilt Shop in Digby, NS...
Faye from Avonport Discount Fabrics in Avonport, NS...
Anne from Panier D'Art in Saulnierville, NS...
And Vicki from Hooking by the Sea in Brier Island, NS.
These four shops are must visit destinations when travelling through the Western Shores of Nova Scotia!
Mr. Painted Quilt (if you can believe it) and I had a great time. Not only was it wonderful to meet up with old friends but I also had the good fortune of making several new ones as well.
Quilting and hooking are very alive and well in Nova Scotia!
I can't wait till next year's event!
