Quilts of Israel Festival

Quilts of Israel

Ailsa Craig Community Quilt Festival
May 20-25, 2013
The Ailsa Craig Community Quilt Festival is unlike any other in the world. The week long exhibition is completely run by volunteers. In 2011 we presented the incredible Quilts of the Netherlands, followed in 2012 by the equally exquisite Quilts of Denmark. A Quilter's haven, perhaps, but equally a destination for many individuals who enjoy the artistic beauty of the quilts.   This year we are proud to present the  Quilts of Israel 2013.  Once again we will be exhibiting this unique fibre art in Ailsa Craig from Monday May 20st to Saturday May 25th when we will be hosting a group of Israeli quilters and exhibiting over 100 Israeli quilts.

Update from Nicaragua

Here is an email from Nancy who is the sewing co-op coordinator in Nicaragua.  She says our girls are doing very well sustaining their sewing co-op.  Very proud of all our students!

    On a more brighter note I seen Pastor Julio and he tells me he has a contract with someone from Canada to make wall hangings with the Nicaraguan flower and bird on them. They continue to move ahead. I feel very proud of them. Pat yourselves on the back girls. You have given these women a hand up rather than a hand out. They don’t need me much anymore.  BlessingsNancy
