The exhibition “My Corner of the World” opened at the Stratford Perth Museum in Stratford, Ontario, in May of this year, and is experiencing tremendous success. The response from thousands of visitors – fibre artists and the general public, tourists and locals – has been exceptional, calling it “magical” and “breathtaking”. We are touring this exquisite show of art quilts across Canada.
“My Corner of the World” is a two-part, international travelling exhibition of art quilts developed by Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA), together with the Stratford Perth Museum.
