Stories in Stitches

Call for artisans and craftpersons

Hosted by Kindred Spirits Quilt Guild and St. Paul’s in Charlottetown, Stories in Stitches returns from September 10–14. The event showcases quilts, hooked rugs, needlecraft and other fabric arts, and attracts over 1200 visitors. 

Organizers are calling for artisans and craftspersons, including quilters, rug hookers and other needlework artists, to enter the exhibition. The deadline to register is August 16 and there is no registration fee.

At Stories in Stitches, works of art, by a variety of artisans, are set out on the pews and railings of the church.This is not a sale, but some presenters do allow subsequent purchase of their works.

The title is Stories in Stitches because there is usually a story about why a piece was created, about a person or cause for which it was made, or about something that happened during the making. Items will be labelled with contact data and information about the history, intent and technique of the work.
