We are calling our event:
Garden Beds Quilt Show, and it will feature many of Marjorie Ashman's bed covers and wall hangings.

A special feature will be a Dresden Plate design quilt created right here in Wiarton in the summer of 1912 for my grandparents, Eloise Elizabeth MacDonald, and James Gordon Adair McEwen.

There will also be new quilts and wall hangings from our friends Wiarton's Creative Stitchers.

Please join us in the gardens for a tour and a glass of Sunshine Tea and help SCAW by making a donation.

If you can't get here send us good thoughts and perhaps make an online donation at the SCAW website.

And help us by "Spreading" the word about our event.

Thanks for your time, Happy Gardening, Tom and Dee at Rural Rootz
