The Wynyard and District Museum and the town of Wynyard are collaborating to offer a full day of cultural connection. h each other and to the history of the prairie landscape.  We hope that todays events will evoke a sense of community much like a threshing party, a barn raising, or a quilting circle would have in days gone by. Participants will paint a 2x2' square plywood to resemble a quilt pattern which they may take home or gift to someone special to be displayed on sheds, or other outbuildings. Led by Dana Stefanson participants will enjoy some creativity and community with this simple project. No artisitic skill required!
