"Secret Stitches” Quilt Show

November 20th (opening night) - 5:30pm-7:30pm at Hassan Law - 142 Dundas St.
Website: Hassan Law

November 21st - 10am-4pm at East Lions Artisan Centre - 1731 Churchill Ave.

The show will feature the work of a woman who endured abuse for the entire length of her 58-year marriage. She lost contact with her children as a result of this abuse. Her way of escaping the pain of both the abuse and the loss of her children (and later her grandchildren) was to create 14 unique and beautiful quilts to send her family a poignant message of love that was only discovered after she passed away earlier this year.

"Quilting gives me somewhere to go when I have to stay where I am." – Unknown
