The Friends of the Oliver Library have postponed the date of their next evening of entertainment, Trunk Show: A Life in Quilts by one week so as not to conflict with Oliver’s Foreign Film Festival. Now lovers of the arts can attend both events.
Come find out what’s in Enid’s trunk! This talented quilter and painter has brought it down from the attic, and is ready to share with you her reflections on an artistic life, told through the quilts she has made through the years. Inspiring and humorous stories, beautiful quilts — all may call forth the artistic spirit in YOU!

How do you capture your life journey? With a diary? Letters? Photographs? A list of books you’ve read? For some people, like artist Enid Baker, memories are made of quilts, and life is tracked in threads on a sewing machine.
Join Enid as she pulls quilts from her travellin’ trunk, and shares moments along her life’s road. Journey with her through a montage of quilted artwork. Find out what quilts stretched her creative talent, made her think, helped her grow, and made her laugh!
