Thanks to the Ottawa Modern Quilt guild, and to Cheerfully Made Markets!

This weekend (the May 7/8) weekend was a handful.

Presenting as a vendor at the Cheerfully Made Market in Almonte with my wood turned items at the same time as my friend Krista (of ) was arranging to display my quilt racks at the Ottawa Modern Quilt Guild’s event at the Ottawa RA centre made for a busy busy weekend.

Thanks to Emily Arbour of for her hard work at creating the event in Almonte, and thanks to the Ottawa Modern Quilt Guild for their event

There was a lot of attention to the quilt racks at the Ottawa Modern Quilt Guild:  Please get in touch if you’d like some lovely furniture.

I take the perspective that an heirloom quality quilt deserves heirloom quality furniture.   If one puts hundreds of hours into creating a quilt, then skimping on a rack that will bow, bend, or warp after a few months is false economy.   I design my quilt racks to be as much of an heirloom as the quilt that is displayed on the rack. That includes quality joinery, a high quality preparation job on the wood so that there are no sharp edges or splinters, and a long lasting finish that will be compatible with the fabric of the quilt.  More expensive, but  a beautiful quilt deserves no less.
