Alsia Craig is “gettin on the barn quilt trail”

Ron Harwood and Mary Simpson discuss barn quilt strategy

A enthusiastic group of community leaders met at the Alsia Craig community hall, Friday November 4,to find out about barn quilts. Mary Simpson and Denise Corneil from Creative-Communities did an education session on the “how to’s” of barn quilt painting and installs. These Alsia Craig citizens are looking to brighten up their beautiful community and what better way than doing a grass roots community project, like barn quilts?

Ailsa Craig Community Quilt Festival is May 1-5, 2012 and will feature the Quilts of Denmark. Barn Quilts are the perfect complement. It’s a true fit. Good luck everybody. Have fun with the project and thanks for “gettin on the barn quilt trail”.
