Spring should be settling in this week. I know it’s hard to believe, but stay positive and maybe within a couple of weeks we will have our chairs outside!
Our hours continue to be 7-3, 7 days a week!
Maple in the county is coming soon! Drop by for some delicious desserts, a good cup of coffee to settle the sweetness of the weekend or some delicious to food to clean your palette for your next maple adventure!
For March and April we have a new group of artists displaying their work in the cafe! Come on in and check it out. Here is some info on the Quinte fibre artists!
QUINTE FIBRE ARTISTS
A group of women, led by Jane Sheppard and Joan Reive, gathered informally to explore their common interest in the fibre arts in the 1980s. With more members and monthly meetings in the participants’ homes, the group eventually named themselves the Quinte Fibre Artists. Today, there are ten members with varied backgrounds in textiles and fibre.
Inspiring and critiquing each other’s work are two valuable functions of our monthly exchanges. New ideas, products, techniques and reading materials are shared and discussed. Group challenges and projects get us thinking in new directions and experimenting with the latest fibre and mixed media products. Members return to their studios refreshed and often with a new perspective on their own work.
Every other year we produce a showing of our work, held at the Parrott Gallery in the Belleville Public Library. We see the show as a celebration of our unity and our individuality; ten different minds focussed on the creation of fibre art works.
The Quinte Fibre Artists are: Joan Reive, Ann Fales, Pat Sztuke, Mary Andrews Minnigan, Sabina McLuhan, Carol Peterson Karen Kaiser, Marta Smith, Marianne Sanders and Marta Mouka.
