Quilters, seamstresses and crafty people take note! You won’t want to miss the Textile Museum’s first fabric extravaganza. It’s spring, time to tidy up and look through all your cupboards and trunks, deciding what to keep and what to move along. That’s what the Museum’s volunteers have been doing, and they have uncovered a treasure trove of fabrics that are taking up too much valuable storage space. They have to go, and you can help.
Opening Ceremony & Raise the Roof cheque presentation: 11:30 a.m. Community Barbeque: 12:00 p.m.
