It is easy to describe this as a typical Mennonite pastime but the art of quilting speaks to so much more. It is a community building art form that culminates in an incredibly practical item. Community, creativity and practicality are perfect descriptors of not only the local Mennonites but also the entire Region.
Roger has been a professional artist in Waterloo County for over 35 years and ran his own gallery in St. Jacobs from 1991 to 2008 when he retired and now paints for his own pleasure. Roger showed and taught in the building that is part of this Cultural Centre Hub now opened as THE TASTING HOUSE. It is with great pleasure that we welcome his work back into the village.
