The first week of May some of my aprons will be exhibited at Gryphon tea room and anApron Memories tea party sponsored by the Montreal West 50+ club will be at the local Community center. I am currently documenting the apron collection and selecting ones for Spring and summer events. The count is very close to 900.
May is quilting Month is Canada and I will be attending and appraising at 3 major quilt shows that month, dates and locations will be in the next post.
Last but not least the downsizing is continuing as is our search for a big condo. I am happy to announce that 10% of my antique quilt collection have found new owners, now to find places for the rest of the STUFF and donate fabric to good homes.
