Some of the quilts, including the barn quilts, will be for sale. Anyone who would like to display a quilt at the Wellington Quilt Show may do so. Quilts for the show should be dropped off at the farm’s Visitor Center by noon Friday, July 19
Throughout the Quilt Show weekend, the entire living history complex will be open. The Stittsville Church, Summer Kitchen and Grist Mill will staffed with historical interpreters in period attire.

Eventually, the Homer Annis House will be the focal point of a historical presentation to be known as the Annis Farmstead. The house is a 1927 Montgomery Ward House, purchased from a catalogue.
