QUILTING IN KASZEBE CANADA
Canadian Kashub women made quilt for necessity back in the old days, using every material from old clothes to make a quilt to keep warm when sleeping. There was no waste, when a part of pants or shirt got used, they would take the better parts to make their quilt- They would use duck feathers for the filling. Today, the need for them are not so great ,but the desire to keep this tradition is. Ladies still quilt for leisure and to make gift for their children.
For the 150 anniversary celebration of Renfrew County – Local ladies and students made a special quilt combining embroidery pieces made by our children and traditional quilting material showcasing the Kashubian Griffin as the focal point.
