Quilt Display in Honour of Residential School Survivors

July 8-Sept. 3, 2023

A temporary exhibit of 10 quilts that feature the same Journey Home fabric panel and were created by the Kincardine Sunset Quilters Guild on behalf of Miss Kettle & Stony Point Jr. These quilts will be gifted to the Residential School Survivors of Kettle & Stony Point First Nation at the close of the exhibit.

This exhibit is included with regular admission to the Huron County Museum, or free with Museum membership or a Huron County Library card.

“While we were at the Wiikemdoong Powwow we found the Journey Home fabric panel. These panels were hard to find so I bought 10 not knowing what the plan would be for these panels. I sent an email to the Kincardine Sunset Quilters Guild to see if they would be interested in making just one. Well they offered to make all 10.  Jaylynn joined a sharing circle with the quilters to learn about each quilt and the story of how and why certain things were chosen. These stories are shared with each quilt in the exhibit. The quilts were then gifted Jaylynn, who will be gifting them to the survivors in September.”
