Cathy and Carol have been quilting for over 15 years, and love showing their quilts. Carol is a professional long arm quilter and loves making quilts with earthy colours, and more recently working with wool. Cathy likes quilts that are different and her colours are a lot brighter. They are both members of the Lanark County Quilters Guild and enjoy being involved in various ways and taking advantage of everything a guild has to offer. Their trunk show is QUILTS!! They think it’s what we all miss seeing!
