Welcome to the Ontario Barn Quilt Trails

Friends and organizers of barn quilt trails (you!) are invited to a webinar demonstration of this new Ontario Barn Quilt Trails website.  It’s been live for a few weeks and we want you to take a look and give us your feedback and ideas.  
David Jonah, our keynote speaker, will get the creative juices flowing and stimulate new ideas about how barn quilt trails can support our rural enterprises and cultural tourism.  If you are thinking about organizing a trail or you are involved in the tourism sector or you are promoting the barn quilt phenomenon, tune in.  

Date: Thursday, July 17th
Time: 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.

Hosted by Mary Simpson and David Jonah at Municipality of Southwest Middlesex Council Chambers

From Antiques to Artisans

We celebrate the visual landscape and the history that brought people to this place. Businesses!   Sponsor a barn quilt.  They act as beacons, leading visitors to your rural business.  Promote your brand.  Highlight your cluster.  Celebrate your unique products.  Help people find your farm gate and CSA.

Every barn quilt has a special story. Discover our Ontario culture: from First Nations’ origins ... to the settlement of our Counties ... to the stories of timber frame barns that are fast disappearing. Communities are using barn quilts to tell their stories.
