A Bit of Local History on Display

Yesterday we had a visit from one of the Historians at the Pickering Museum Villlage. The museum recreates a pioneer village and we are very honored that they come to Sew Sisters to acquire some of their 19th Century reproduction fabrics. It is always such a pleasure and education when the museum folks drop by! I wonder if we looked carefully if we could see any dresses made from them in this picture?
Also of interest to quilters is a display of Quilt Treasures from the Collection of the Wellington County Museum & Archives which will be running all spring
