Shoppers at Quilt Canada, Halifax

Shoppers at Quilt Canada
Here in this photo, all the art work is done and the booth is opened May 30, 2012 at Quilt Canada in Halifax, NS. In the photo, shoppers are looking at the Textile Art of Eileen Gidman.
In our booth we met quilters and art appreciators from British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Cape Breton, Newfoundland, Illinois, Maine and Britian. Loved that! Lesley Carruthers from Port Hawkesbury, Nova Scotia was one such shopper I met. Check out her blog especially the post from June 6, 2012: lesleythecuddlequilter.blogspot.

I am sure I heard at least 10 times, customers say they had moved to the Maritimes from the other side of the country where I am from. The best story I heard though is one lady telling us she moved here with only two suitcases and a sewing machine.  After we exclaimed about this she added well a couple of boxes followed later............and then she adds, “Well
those contained my fabric stash”.

Just love this post about your experience, Eileen, and it's wonderful to see the June 6 blog post from Lesley Carruthers! You can be justifiably proud of your time at Quilt Canada!
