Something is Fishy in Sackets Harbor:
 
There’s Still Time to Enter Great Lakes Fish Quiltwork for March 16-18 Show Competition

Sackets Harbor, NY -- The 2007 Seaway Trail Quilt Show and Competition is seeking quilts and wallhangings featuring Great Lakes fish. Realistic entries of authentically depicted fish and stylized entries showing the fish in an interpretive artistic design will be displayed in the three-story historic former Union Hotel that is now the Seaway Trail Discovery Center in Sackets Harbor, NY. Entries for the March 16-18 show and competition can be pieced, appliquéd, hand quilted or machine quilted. Entries will be accepted through March 13. Guidelines and entry form are online at www.seawaytrail.com.
 
Show visitors will select the competition winners who will receive gift certificates redeemable at Coleman Family Restaurants: Kathy’s Barracks Inn in Sackets Harbor and the Fairgrounds Inn, Watertown. Each of the four category winners will also receive a $25 gift certificate redeemable from the Gift Shop at the Discovery Center. One winner will be selected by only the men visiting the show.
 
The event will also feature demonstrators, a 1 pm presentation daily by quilter and Bassmaster angler JoAnne Flood speaking on Quilting and Fishing for Both Sexes, and vendors from as far away as Vermont with fabric, notions, quilting machines, patterns and baskets and other items of interest to quilters.
 
Admission for the show preview and reception on Friday, March 16 plus Saturday, March 17; and Sunday, March 18 is $4 total. The Seaway Trail Discovery Center is at the corner of Ray and West Main Streets on the Sackets Harbor waterfront. The Seaway Trail, a 518-mile America’s Byway that parallels the St. Lawrence River, Lake Ontario, the Niagara River and Lake Erie in New York and Pennsylvania, is also a National Recreation Trail known for its world-class sportfishing waters. # # #
