Celebration of Quilts XII
Mark the York Heritage Quilt show on your calendars and please come and be amazed at the glorious quilts you will see at the Toronto Botanical Gardens (Edwards Gardens) on Friday November 14th and Saturday November 15th! In addition to the over 200 quilts that will be displayed, there is a marketplace featuring 16 vendors for your shopping pleasure, two café locations to grab some lunch, plus a boutique filled with unique one-of-a-kind hand-made items just in time for the holiday gift-giving season. In addition, for a very reasonable price of $24, you can purchase a 12”x12” mini-quilt hand-made by a talented YHQG member.
It will be a beautiful and exciting show! To see more information about the show, please visit: www.yhqg.org/quiltshow2014
The show is open Friday November 14 from 10-6, and 10-5 on Saturday November 15.
