Medina Journal-Register — Orleans Co. part of Great Lakes Seaway Trail quilt show

Seaway Trail, Inc. has announced that its byway-themed quilt show will now be held on a biennial schedule with the next event scheduled for 2015.

Since 2001, the event, held in Sackets Harbor, has showcased quilting as a cultural heritage theme for traveling the 518-mile-long Great Lakes Seaway Trail. The biennial scheduling in part will accommodate the even-year biennial dates of the nearby North Country Quilt Guild Quilting Show held in Clayton, NY. The North Country Quilt Guild’s next event will be held June 6-8, 2014. 

The theme for the 2015 Great Lakes Seaway Trail Quilt Show is Vineyards, Fields, Farms and Food.

The National Scenic Byway Great Lakes Seaway Trail offers unique land and freshwater travel opportunities along Lake Erie, the Niagara River, Lake Ontario, and the St. Lawrence River. Quilters find fabric shops and quilting workshop events throughout the byway region. Along western Lake Ontario, the 22-mile Orleans County Country Barn Quilt Trail loop tour and audio tour starts off the Great Lakes Seaway Trail at Partyka Farms in the Town of Kendall and takes travelers to more than 50 buildings with painted quilt patterns. The Orleans County Tourism Office is a long-time supporter of this unique travel promotion event.

Those interested in participating in the 2015 show as quilters, sponsors, vendors or volunteers should contact show manager Lynette Lundy-Beck at (315) 646-1000, ext. 203 or by e-mail at
