War of 1812 Quilt Show "1812 1/2" Reprise

JASNA Syracuse Region member Lynette Lundy-Beck of Sackets Harbor says that the War of 1812 Quilt Show there in March (see our February 19 post for details and quilt photos from that show) was such fun, the quilters are back for an encore on the weekend of September 29-30!  She writes:  

The Great Lakes Seaway Trail 1812 ½ Quilt Show at the Seaway Trail Discovery Center features the international traveling exhibit of 26 1812-style quilts, new Great Lakes Seaway Trail “Storyteller” interpretive panels about the War of 1812, and new works by American and Canadian quilters using patterns, colors and fabrics true to the 1812 time period.

Show hours are 10am-5 pm Saturday and Sunday. The $5 admission is good for both days. For more information, go online to this link or call Lynette at 315-646-1000 x203.

Lynette adds that Regency dress is encouraged--so if you're free for a lovely autumn drive on the 29th or 30th, put on your best Austenite threads and head for Sackets Harbor!
