Dunnville’s Lifespan Arena was hopping Saturday as visitors poured in for the Dunnville Lions Home and Craft Show.

There was lots to see, from large exhibits to the smaller craft tables.

Above, Fran Pettigrew and Janet Roscovich from Dunnville’s Own Tiny Stitchers (d.o.t.s.) quilting group were raffling this beautiful quilt, the proceeds from which are destined to help the fundraising for the Haldimand War Memorial’s new emergency department.

For those interested in quilting, the group meets at 7 pm the first Wednesday of the month (Sep-June) at Maple Creek Community Church, 110 Inman Road, and will be holding their own quilt show May 24 and 25.

Victoria Frank of VF Creations in Binbrook was displaying her line of breathtaking jewel-toned hand painted glasses, depicting a multitude of flowers, on everything from shot glasses to large goblets.

At the other end of the scale, retired steelworker Mike Chalmers of Canborough was showing his handsome line of solid wood, hand finished furniture and riding toys. 

While he has made “live edge” tables in walnut, Chalmers likes to work in red oak and cherry for his furniture, and will customize his pieces to fit in a required area. His riding toys are usually made in walnut or oak.
