On Saturday, March 18, the Cornwall Quilters’ Guild was on site at the Cornwall Square for a quilting demonstration. Members of the guild set up hanging quilts for people to see along with several tables where they were working on quilts themselves.

The demonstration coincided with International Quilting Day and was an opportunity for the Cornwall Quilters’ Guild to promote their upcoming event, Quilts on the Seaway, taking place at St. John’s Presbyterian Church on April 14th and 15th.

The Cornwall Quilters’ Guild was established in 1992 and currently has over 50 active members. April’s quilt show will be the first in four years due to the pandemic. There will be over 300 quilts on display, a boutique with quilted items on display, and a bed turning announced by town crier Wes Libbey.

“Quilts on the bed, two people hold them up and someone tells a story. Every quilt has a story behind it. That’s always interesting. We do those twice a day at 11am and 2pm,” said Sharon Magee.

Mayor Justin Towndale will be at the event on Saturday morning to present the Best of Show.
