The Story of the StorySave Quilt
Bear with us as we maintain the quilt pages - some of them are being revised and improved as of April 2, 2013
||The StorySave quilt has become a tradition with Storytellers of Canada-Conteurs du Canada. The first quilt was made in 2002 by T.A.L.E.S. (The Alberta Association for Telling and Encouraging Storytelling) as a project to raise money for SC-CC's StorySave project.
Raffle tickets were sold at a number of events and at the national conference. It was such a success that Pearl-Ann Gooding called upon storytellers across the country to contribute a square to the next quilt. There has been a quilt every year since then except in 2005, when
a Silent Auction was held instead at the conference in Calgary. Members of SC-CC can nominate tellers for StorySave recording. If you are not a member, please contact a member in your area to discuss your idea for a nomination.
Here is Pearl Ann in action ( left) aided and abetted by Mary-Eileen McClear of Baden, Ontario (right) rallying people at the
Annual Meeting in Halifax to buy tickets.
Pearl Ann challenged everyone to help reach the target of $1000 worth of tickets sold. Pearl-Ann is hard to resist.
The Quilt would not have been possible without the dedication and hard work of Pearl-Ann. A big Thank You to Pearl Ann for all her hard work coordinating quilters and assembling the quilt.
Here is Pearl-Ann wearing her wonderful "Family Ties" jacket tailored by her mother from ties collected from family members. It is a coat of many stories.
A big THANKS to Pearl Anne!
We don't have photos or stories until 2006, but here is Dunc Shields telling a story in front of the 2005 quilt won by Kevin MacKenzie at a house concert at Kevin's.
You never know when a StorySave quilt will make an appearance at an event near you.
