NATURESSENCE Exhibit opens at Mississippi Mills Textile Museum

Please make time this fall to visit the beautiful exhibition of Elaine Quehl and Catharina Breedyk Law at the Mississippi Mills Textile Mueseum located in the lovely town of Almonte, ON. The Museum offers visitors a lovely step back in time to explore the restored Mill which sits alongside the river in the village and the opportunity to see a collection of outstanding quilts created by Cathy and Elaine which is unrivaled in the Ontario and Canadian Textile medium. The pair are professional quilt artists working in a studio environment to create quilts that depict the beauty of the Canadian landscape and the unique views captured as they have travelled, photographed and enjoyed nature at its best.

This is a perfect time of year to take a drive with a few good friends and enjoy the beautiful quilts created to celebrate Nature and the mastery of these two talented quilters as they express their creative process in cloth and stitch. Plan lunch in the village and visit the area shops now as they gear up for Holiday shopping. Lunch at one of the several amazing dining options in the downtown will be a treat.

Contact the Museum for hours and be sure to visit while this beautiful collection of quilts is up for viewing.
