For the Love of Barn Quilts

​For the Love of Barn Quilts

Enter the world of Barn Quilts, the rural art phenomenon that decorates the North American countryside including within Chatham-Kent. With Susanne Spence Wilkins, barn lover and barn quilt painter, you will discover how rural communities and families are telling their stories through Barn Quilts along the trail. Inside their historic 8-sided barn, create your own 24" by 24" barn quilt to bring home using fun geometric shapes while uncovering how how colours and patters can tell your story. 

You will also be treated to country-style scones fresh from the oven and Ontario-made teas and coffee. This four-hour long experience is perfect for a friends day out, couples, families who want to tell their stories and anyone wishing to learn more about rural stories and barn quilts. *You will need to bring a blow dryer and wear painting clothes.
