Heartland Quilters held their first quilt show on May 24-25, 2016 at Quarry Oaks Golf Course. Members displayed quilts made throughout the previous year showing off their skills and creativity. One hundred and twenty-five quilts decorated the reception room at the golf club and were viewed by many visitors before being donated to various charities. Representatives from Quilts of Valour, Siloam Mission, Linus Project, the Steinbach Family Resource Centre, and MCC were on hand at the end of the show to gratefully accept these donations.
The event also served as a fundraiser for the group with a quilt raffle, silent auction, and door prize. Proceeds will be used to purchase batting and backing fabric for more quilts.
