PORT HARDY—Quilts and tea share the spotlight as Island's End Quilters display nearly 100 original pieces for residents

PORT HARDY—Residents and staff of Eagle Ridge Manor found the facility’s common room transformed into a quilting showcase during a recent tea event.

Members of Island’s End Quilters brought nearly 100 pieces of original quilted pieces — including one nearly 100 years old — to share during the tea, the brainchild of activities coordinator Louise Dugas.

Quilting guild members shared their stories of several of the larger and more intricate quilts. In addition to larger, blanket-sized works, quilted items included everything from placemats and potholders to oversized Christmas stockings.

Island’s End Quilters meet the third Sunday of each month at Port Hardy Secondary School, throughout the school year. After taking the summer off, the group will kick off its next season during the Mount Waddington Regional Fall Fair in September. Interested quilters may meet with members to learn about joining the group at that time.
