Four public workshops were held at the Cobourg Public Library and at a lovely cafe’ called Meet at 66 King in Cobourg. Everybody was invited to “show their true colours” by helping to design a fish. The results were a stunning array of shapes and colours all that will become a part of the “community quilt”. All very exciting!!! I was impressed with the large variety of ages that attended. Families came in and designed a fish unique to their ages and stages.
All of this activity could not have happened without the help of my friend and colleague Kaye Jackson who helped organize and run the workshops. Kaye also designed and sewed her own fish
The staff of the town of Cobourg get involved and design their own fish. Many hands create a one of a kind art work.
Annette, one of Cobourg’s own “Crazy Quilters” came to the workshop and created her own stunningly crazy fish.
