Summer student employee David McWatters

The Barriere museum is now open for the summer, from Tuesdays to Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. during the months of July and August.  As you enter, you will be greeted by David McWatters, who is this summer’s student worker. He will be happy to show you around the museum or answer any questions you may have.

Then, from July 27 to Aug. 10, the annual Quilt Show will be on display.  This is a great opportunity to view the beautiful handworked quilts created by Barriere and area community quilters.  The quilts are all sizes, from small wall hangings to full king sized quilts.  As usual, visitors to the museum can vote for their favourite quilts, so be sure to drop by and cast your vote.
