This comes from the Great Lakes Seaway Trail:
Seaway Trail, Inc. has announced that
its byway-themed quilt show will now be held on a biennial schedule
with the next event scheduled for 2015.
Since 2001, the event, held in Sackets Harbor, has showcased
quilting as a cultural heritage theme for traveling the 518-mile-long
Great Lakes Seaway Trail.
The biennial scheduling in part will
accommodate the even-year biennial dates of the nearby North Country
Quilt Guild Quilting Show held in Clayton, NY. The North Country Quilt
Guild’s next event will be held June 6-8, 2014.
The theme for the 2015 Great Lakes Seaway Trail Quilt Show is Vineyards, Fields, Farms and Food.
Past Great Lakes Seaway Trail Quilt Shows have featured favorite Seaway
Trail places, lighthouses, Great Lakes fish, birding, the War of 1812,
the museum heritage quilts found at attractions on the byway, the
byway’s Amish quilting communities, and quilters from the 11-county
waterfront region in New York and Pennsylvania who have published
The first show was a one-woman show by Mary Knapp, who
published her first book of designs in 2013. Photos and a history of the
show are online at www.seawaytrail.com/quilting.
The National Scenic Byway Great Lakes Seaway Trail offers unique land
and freshwater travel opportunities along Lake Erie, the Niagara River,
Lake Ontario, and the St. Lawrence River. Quilters find fabric shops and
quilting workshop events throughout the byway region.
Lake Ontario, the 22-mile Orleans County Country Barn Quilt Trail loop
tour and audio tour starts off the Great Lakes Seaway Trail at Partyka
Farms in the Town of Kendall and takes travelers to more than 50
buildings with painted quilt patterns.
