Marian Lanhus was introduced as tonight's speaker. Marian and her husband Bruce. They moved to Gagetown, NB took over the Step A Side B & B renaming it Lang House after their name Langhus, which means long house in Norwegian.
Marian is an avid collector of old and loved quilts. She showed a few of her quilts and also gave a demonstration on framed blocks within double panes of glass. Marian then introduced her friend Author Kathie Goggin who shared a portion of her writing with us.
