Jim & Anne Rouse, Hosts of this year's Cadbury Quilt & Arts Festival

Jim and Anne Rouse, Cadbury residents and this years’ hosts of the Cadbury Quilt & Arts Festival, are extending a personal invitation to join them at Cadbury at Lewes, located on Gills Neck Road, on September 10th and 11th. View and purchase treasures from an array of work including pottery, jewelry, by local artists and artisans. One of the main attractions are the over 75 quilts on display and for sale. Each unique and wonderful.

Kevin Fleming, noted photographer, will be the focus of attention at the artist and artisan preview sale during the Wine & Sweet Dreams Reception on Friday evening, September 10 th from 7 pm – 9 pm.. Meet with Kevin and discuss his latest book, “Wild Delmarva”. Admission is $20 per person. The reception includes an opportunity to win a Kevin Fleming framed signed print, enjoy “sweet treats” of tempting desserts paired with specially selected wines and enjoy live music by Doug James on the piano. Friday’s preview reception is the time to get first choice of many one-of-a kind art works.

The Piece Makers, a group of talented Cadbury residents, has joined forces with the Ocean Waves Quilt Guild to become the “heart” of the festival. Quilt and quilt related articles will be on display and for sale. Jeanne Booth, long time Rehoboth resident, is the Guild’s featured quilter and will have many of her beautiful works on display. Ludmilla (Lucy) Morgan, recent recipient of numerous blue ribbons, Judge’s Choice Award and Governor’s Award at the recent Delaware State Fair will have many of her strikingly beautiful quilts for display and for sale. Be on hand at the reception on Friday for the first time Kevin Fleming sees in person the award winning quilt created by Lucy Morgan from his 2008 print “Lunch to Go.”

The “ageless art” theme of the Festival will even feature masterpieces created during the summer by young Kid Cottage Artists!
