The Quilted Word Anthology
by Georgian Bay Folk Society
Lori Twining was asked to participate as a writer in The Quilted Word Project in the spring of 2011. The Georgian Bay Folk Society initiated the project and partnered with a few local groups, such as The Grey Bruce Cultural Network, The Tempo Foundation and The Bluewater Quilters Guild to develop this project through the Creative Aging in Action Program. Each quilter was paired with one of the volunteer writers. Our job as the writer, was to capture the story that inspired our quilter to create their quilt block.
Unfortunately, the book is no longer in print and is unavailable for purchase.
