Vermont Quilt Auction and Tractor Parade Oct 10

Quilt Auction Saturday October 10

Vermont is a rural state and I suppose nothing says rural like quilts and tractors. If you would like to see to some of the local rural flavor, here are two good Vermont events you can attend, one featuring quilts and the other parading tractors.

Cabin Fever Quilts in Waitsfield Vt is sponsoring a benefit auction of 75 hand made quilts to raise funds for the local Food Bank, Humane Society, Battered Women's Shelter, and Seedbank for Haiti.

The auction will be held at the Waitsfield Elementary School with a preview 9:00 am and the auction at 11:00 am. The quilts are craft made in the local area.

You can see a slide show of some of the quilts to be auctioned here. But be warned, once you see them, you are going to want them!

Charlotte Tractor Parade October 10

Don't worry about the line through the date on the Charlotte Tractor Parade home page. It's just some html that's gone wacky. The event is still this Sunday, October 10.

Event time 11:00 am until 5:00 pm with the parade of well over 100 antique and modern tractors starting at at 1:00 pm. There will be a farmers' market, free children's games,
hayride, music, food, toy tractor display, and more. Specific information and directions are here.

By the way, if you stop and ask for directions to CHARlotte, you will get directions to North Carolina. If you ask for directions to CharLOTTE you will be directed to the village in Vermont. That's just how we roll here - French Canadian influence you know.

The weather forecast is sunny tomorrow but cool - bring a jacket and a camera for the fall foliage too.
