Lancaster is the new home for administrators for one of Canada's most cherished art pieces.
The Quilt of Belonging, a touring textile art exhibit which got its start in Williamstown, will have its offices moved to Lancaster.
The project is now located in the Glengarry Business Centre on Oak Street.
“We appreciate the support of the Township of South Glengarry over the years and thank them for their past generosity in providing a home for the project,” said Mackie Robertson, chair of the Quilt of Belonging.
The 120-foot quilt is still on tour, and a permanent home, large enough for the piece itself, has not yet been found.
With the quilt still on tour, the project tasks are now largely administrative said officials, and the move to the new professional offices satisfies the business needs for the project.
The project’s focus is now on completing an upcoming documentary on the story of the quilt.
Executive director Esther Bryan noted the documentary, funded by an Ontario Trillium Foundation grant, is a tribute tovolunteers who help with the quilt's tour.
