Join us at the Simcoe County Museum for the annual Simcoe County Quilt, Rug and Craft Fair running Sept. 14 – 16, 2018. Curious about how lace was made? Ever wonder what a loom is, or how it works?

Quilting, embroidery, rug hooking, spinning, hand weaving, and lace making are just some of the beautiful heritage-style crafts that you will see being created, displayed, and for sale during the event.
