Longwoods Road Quilts
Members of the Longwoods Road Quilt Team met July 21 at the Sew Creative quilting shop owned by Joan Hilhorst, Mt Brydges.
The enthusiastic group received a history lesson from Mr Glen Stott about the historical events that occurred on the Longwoods Road during the War of 1812. Two quilts are to be created in honour of the local women of this region during this important time in Canadian History.
The two quilts are a precursor to the 60 barn quilt blocks that are planned from Thamesville to Delaware along the Longwoods Road.
If you are interested in getting involved in these great projects please contact me. Quilters are needed.
