Ontario Barn Quilt Trails 2013
Tourism Middlesex supported Creative Communities and Jonah & Associates to form a collaborative partnership that was funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation in 2013 to promote barn quilt trails throughout Ontario as a way to tell community stories.
Also known as the Barn Quilt Ladies, Denise Corneil and Mary Simpson unwaveringly supported the Barn Quilt Movement, following in the foot steps of Donna Sue Groves, Suzi Parron and other barn quilt promoters.
Jonah & Associates and their Media Lab for community based publishing, LocalintheKnow Publishing built this website and map. They see barn quilts as a great way to communicate with the travelling public.
E.O.N. is an incorporated Association of Curators and Directors of Art Galleries, Museums, Historical Societies, and Archives that helped spread barn quilts across Ontario. Mary Gladwin is a past president, archivist and artist who never stops promoting barn quilts as a means of preserving and promoting heritage and culture.
Melissa Schenk and her team are passionate about the power of video to help businesses evolve to the next generation of online video & social media marketing. MS2 Productions showed us how to reach out to communities to help them access videos on how to "Get on the Barn Quilt Trail".
