SCUGOG: The Port Perry Patchers will present a fresh batch of quilts and quilted items on Saturday, Nov. 1 - with the grand opening of a new exhibit ‘Tradition Meets Modern’ put together by the guild.
From 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., drop by the Scugog Council for the Arts office, located inside 181 Perry St. right next to the municipal office, to meet the artists behind these beatiful pieces of hand-stitched art.
“We are proposing to expand on the theme ‘Tradition Meets Modern - Celebrating 25 Years’ with the show,” said Robin Bonkowsi of The Port Perry Patchers. “The show will present a journey of how our craft has been transformed from quilting built on centuries of tradition through to the exciting new challenges of being part of a broader Fibre Arts community using mixed media, contemporary thread painting and other modern techniques.”
Art patrons and quilters alike are invited to join the Port Perry Patchers Guild in the anniversary celebrations of 25 years in this community.
The Port Perry Patchers are a quilting guild based out of Port Perry, which has actively served the needs of its members and the Durham community for 25 years.
According to Ms. Bonkowski, the objectives of the Port Perry Patchers are ‘to meet and enjoy the exchange of ideas with fellow quilters.’ The group also strives to bring qualified experts and speakers in these fields for seminars and workshops.
The Port Perry Patchers meet every third Monday evening at 7 p.m., inside Hope Christian Reform Church, 14480 Old Simcoe Rd., in Port Perry. Interested quilters and newcomers are invited to join at any time, by simply contacting a member and filling out a registration form, and paying either an $8 guest fee or $35 annual fee.
