Lambton Heritage Museum will host the bi-annual North Lambton Quilters’ Guild Quilt Show from June 29 to September 2.

Established in 1989, the North Lambton Quilters’ Guild has been active for almost 35 years and exhibiting their work at Lambton Heritage Museum for more than 15 years.

The 2023 show will include dozens of beautiful quilts alongside other handmade items like clothing, wall hangings, table toppers, and quilted accessories.

A selection of historic quilts from the Museum’s collection will be displayed alongside the Guild’s creations, highlighting old and new techniques.

“We’re so pleased the North Lambton Quilters’ Guild Quilt Show has returned to the Museum again,” said Dana Thorne, Curator/Supervisor of Lambton Heritage Museum. “Their last show in 2021 was a smaller affair due to public health requirements. The formatting this year will be reminiscent of years pre-pandemic, with dozens of quilts and other items on display.

“Some of the Guild members used the pandemic as an opportunity to finish larger projects and we can’t wait for our visitors to see what they’ve created.”

The exhibit will kick off with special events running from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the opening weekend, June 29, 30, and July 1. Visitors can meet members of the guild, view quilting demonstrations, purchase light refreshments from the tearoom, browse vendors selling quilting supplies and books, and shop in the Guild’s quilting rummage sale.

The Museum hours are Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Thursdays from 11:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.

For more information, please call the Museum at 519-243-2600 or visit heritagemuseum.ca.
