Oak Lake Cozy Quilters display their craft

On April 13, the Oak Lake Cozy Quilters held a quilt show in the community hall

 

The weather was terrific and helped to bring out 198 quilt enthusiasts to admire over 70 quilts and other projects the group worked on throughout the year.

These projects included a raw edge applique taught by guest instructor Jocelyn Marchuk and the impressive results were also displayed.

Marion Masson was our feature quilter and she had approximately 13 quilts on display that she’d made over her many years of perfecting the craft. Marion is a founding member of our group, serving time as instructor and mentor to many of our current members.

Marion also served as club president in the beginning years of our club, and often had quilting bees in her basement where many local ladies would stitch and visit.

The quilt show also had three vendors. Custom Creations, Empty Bobbin, and Momma Bears, attended to display their current stock of material and other sewing notions. Two of the vendors each gave a half-hour demonstration of quilting techniques.

Custom Creations from Virden demonstrated a technique using two different templates for making pieces that fit into a pattern of a quilt.

Empty Bobbin of Swan River demonstrated how to add a chenille look to a quilt to give the blanket a more defined texture.

Lunch consisting of soup, biscuit and dessert, was enjoyed by many participants. We also had door prizes and raffled off several other lovely baskets donated by members and many local businesses.

The Oak Lake Cozy quilters really appreciate everyone who helped to make this day the success it was, including the husbands who set up the quilt display racks, ladies that made food for lunch, the businesses that donated for the raffles, the group members for their hard work on the various projects, the vendors, and those that came out to enjoy the quilts. We hope to see everyone soon, stay Cozy.
