Thursday July 28th, 2022, the Parish of Bonne Bay North Prayer Quilt Group hosted its 3rd annual quilt show, at St. Matthew’s Church in Rocky Harbour, as part of the annual Harbour Lights Festival. Quilts, placemats, table runners, bags, wall hangings, and many other items were on display. Included in the show was a section displaying 8 Quilts of Valour; a section displaying prayer quilts; and a section displaying heritage quilts, including a quilt made approximately 78+ years ago by local ACW members who had hand stitched names of the local men who served overseas during WWII, and which unit of the Armed Forces they served. 

 

The quilt show was very well attended to view the awesome pieces of artwork on display! There was also a bake sale that sold out in record time! 

A huge thank you to all the ladies of the Parish of Bonne Bay North Prayer Quilt Group who tirelessly volunteered endless hours to make this event a wonderful success.
