Kingross Quilts and Fibre Art
Kingross Quilts and Fibre Art is the studio of international award winning artist Anne Morrell Robinson. It is located in the Big Intervale, historically known as Kingross, and overlooking the Margaree River in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. The studio is open year round by appointment or chance and has an ever changing supply of fine quilts, primitive hooked rugs, painted floor cloths, wearable art, and dolls available for purchase. A classroom is available for small retreats, private or group instruction.
Anne has been making quilts since 1971 and has made over 500 to date. Many have been commissioned for both public places and private homes. Her speciality is applique quilts with nature being a strong element. Traditional patterns often blend together with original designs in each unique piece. Her hooked rugs are done in the wide cut primitive technique and feature original designs with a hint of whimsy and humor. Clothing, floor cloths and dolls are constructed when the artist is in need of some "play time". Anne also likes to share her passion for the fibre arts with others and travels to national conferences, guilds or schools to teach. She designs her own patterns, which have been published in books and magazines or to use in her classes.
How to get there
4259 W.Big Intervale Rd The studio is a bit off the beaten track but not far from the Cabot Trail in N.E. Margaree. From the Cabot Trail follow the signs to Margaree Valley and the East Big Intervale Road. You will see signs to for the studio and for the Big Intervale Fishing Lodge all along the way. In Margaree Valley watch for the turn for E. Big Intervale Rd, (just after the general store, Baptist church and post office). The road will turn to gravel as it heads north; it is 11.8 km from where the pavements ends to our door. Turn left at the green group mailbox just after passing the Big Intervale United Church. Turn left again after crossing the iron bridge over the Margaree River, you are now on West Big Intervale Rd. We are the first house on the right.
