IT’S “QUILT DAY” IN WESTPORT

Quilts #5Hat’s off to the Westport Arts Council for organizing the “Fabric of our Lives”,  a tribute and celebration of all things “quilted”.  There are six locations for you to be inspired by hundreds of quilts!  Stop at the museum first to register, beginning at 9:30.  Show runs until 3:00 p.m. today.

The Arts Council has asked everyone to get involved … so please remember to put your quilts out today – on your front porch, in the garden, in your front window!

Grade 2/3 chair for Art on the Street has a new home … on my front verandah!!!

Westport Arts Council held a summer fund raiser called “Art on the Street”.  6 artists each painted a different Muskoka wooden chair, using a Canadian theme to celebrate our 150Birthday.  Tickets were sold on the chairs for the past 8 weeks. At MUSICwestport yesterday (Saturday, August 19) my ticket was drawn and I won the Rideau Vista Public School Grade 2/3 chair.  I am thrilled!  I met the artists in June when I picked the chair up and am so happy that it is now in a place of honour on my front verandah.  Well done!
