Takin’ the Barn Quilt show on the road
Mary Simpson and Denise Corneil have taken the “Talkin’ Barn Quilts” on the road.
We thank the Rodney Kiwanis Club for inviting us to tell them about barn quilts. TELL them!? We challenged them to launch a barn quilt project that tells the story of Aldborough Township and Rodney. Every community has an intriguing story to illustrate with folk art.
Be it village or farm side, there is a Creative Community waiting to be inspired to do a barn quilt.
Our 45-minute show will inspire your community to get on the barn quilt trail. It’s time for our rural communities to connect with social media and tell their story: facebook, twitter, blogs, Power point, You Tube video. They are important tools for connecting with the virtual world. Our younger and urban neighbours want to connect with the country. Barn quilts are the visual – social media is the means of communication.
