Add a square to a Canada 150 quilt: no sewing experience needed!


Local quilters Mary Spring and Terri Howell are at it again. Thanks to a District of Muskoka Pay It Forward grant, the pair are hosting two drop-in quilting sessions, this time with a twist. In the past, they hosted landscape quilting workshops for free to local students to share their love for the art. This month – on March 20 and 28 – they are inviting anyone with a love for Canada to drop in and make a square for a Canada 150 quilt. No sewing experience is required – they’ll help anyone learn how.

Stop in at the Huntsville Public Library’s Annex today (March 20) from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. to put your touch on the quilt. Or if you can’t make it today, head to the library on March 28.

Once the squares are complete, they will be pieced together and quilted locally and then presented as a gift to the library.
