Trudy Cowan Presentation:  The Little Grey Mouse:  A Fable in Fabric

Trudy CowanApril 11, 2019  

Join us on Thursday, April 11 at 10:30 am for a special presentation by local author and quilter, Trudy Cowan, on her most recent children's book, The Little Grey Mouse: A Fable in Fabric. This is Trudy's 3rd published book, but her first in which she was the illustrator - all from eleven quilts! Trudy will discuss how this book came to be and her process of making the quilts to illustrate her story outline. The quilts will be on display for your viewing.

Trudy has worked and volunteered in the historical, heritage, and museum field for years, leading to an honorary doctorate awarded by the University of Calgary in 2003. Many of you will remember Trudy as the 2017 Quilter of Distinction at the Festival of Quilts; others will fondly recall sewing days with Trudy in our classroom - some of which were spent on The Little Grey Mouse illustrations!

Tickets for this event are $5, which can be applied towards purchases on that day. Doorprizes have kindly been provided by Trend-Tex Fabrics (and I know all of you love fabric).

Call today to purchase your ticket! Limited seating. 403-253-4419

Tickets can be held for you at the store. Tickets are non-refundable and non-replaceable. If you can't come, feel free to send a friend. One ticket redemption per customer on date of event only.
