The day has finally come!! Tomorrow is officially our National Quilt Day celebrations and true to her nature organizer, Frances van der Walt, who lost her mother-in-law after a massive stroke earlier this week, made it all possible even with the obvious sadness at home. We salute you Frances!!
Those who have already been to the exhibitions at the Freshford Museum couldn’t stop talking about the 65 quilts on display in the old time setting. Here we thank each and every member who gave a quilt to display. Without you………… well, need I say more?
Frances had the opportunity to take photographs in the museum which is usually not allowed and how I enjoy showcasing these here. Let the truth be told, Bloemfontein has the finest museums in our country.
You still have time to buy your R40,00 ticket for the tea garden, snacks, free pattern and demonstrations that will take place tomorrow, Saturday, 12 March 2011.
So why you are still reading this, pick up the phone and get your ticket!! The quilts anyway look better in real life than on these photos.
