Report from South Caradoc, Ailsa Craig.

On October 26th, the quilt design will be presented to the community at the Melbourne Community Hall. Pauline Grondin, a professional storyteller, will bring the period to life. Dressed in period clothing, she will tell how the war disrupted community life for three years. Ms. Grondin is also a quilter, so barn quilts have piqued her interest. She is driving in from Burlington to join the fun.

Also, November 8. First Nations history and quilt design.
