Quilters on Vacation: Picton and Belleville, Ontario

Gail M-L sends us this email and photos:

These photos were taken in Picton. There is a big quilt show there next weekend and many of the stores in town had quilts in the windows along with posters advertising the show. Unfortunately, I will miss the show, but I did enjoy seeing the quilts in the windows.

I also went to a great quilt store in Belleville where I added some stash to my stash... It was called Fun with Stitches. The last two photos were taken at the store. You can see my reflection in one of the windows as I took the picture.

I also met Greta Kristiansen-Jacobs--a quilt maker and fibre artist who has a studio in her home near Picton. I was not allowed to take any pictures in her studio but I did pick up a brochure. She specializes in American Beauty quilts and does trunk shows and workshops. She recently taught at Quilt Canada in Nfld; her quilts were beautiful and made with brightly coloured fabric.
