The award-winning British comedian performs live in concert in his biggest ever show with a full lineup of top international talent at the Kingsbrae International Residence for the Arts (KIRA) Amphitheatre.
Mullinger is bringing together some of the biggest and best acts in the world to give New Brunswick a night to remember. In 2019, James’ show was the most prominent outdoor comedy show in Atlantic Canadian history and sold out very quickly. Despite being Mullinger’s biggest ever show, it will likely sell out again, so please book now! Doors to the event open at 6 pm. Licensed bar and light food will be available for purchase. Arrive earlier to enjoy a meal at Savour In The Garden at Kingsbrae Garden.
* Please note, that the order confirmation email is your entrance to the show. No refunds, thank you for your understanding.
Next week the visual artist Emily Dow will be the artist-in-residence for the Fredericton Arts Alliance program. She is a survivor of relationship abuse, and through her residency, she wants to encourage discussions about abuse and healing.
Dow is planning to do her pop-up in Odell Park, weather permitting, July 16, at 2 p.m. She is looking forward to meeting people of all ages, LGBTQIA+ individuals, victims, and non-victims at her event.

Learn the basics of free motion embroidery or thread painting using your regular zigzag sewing machine. Lower the feed dogs and use your needle like a paint brush to create flowers, leaves, trees, weeds, ripples in water, etc. You can spend the entire day perfecting your stitches or start a small landscape. Information on design will also be discussed.
Kathy Tidswell combines painting on fabric with free motion machine embroidery to produce thread painted works of art. She also blends innovative and traditional techniques to create unique wall quilts and original wearable art. Nature is a large influence on her work and she strives for realism. Her pieces have been juried into Canadian Quilters’ Association National Juried Shows (winning two awards), Grand National Juried Exhibitions, Studio Art Quilt Associates regional shows and Ontario Network of Needleworkers Threadworks. Her work has been published nationally and internationally. Kathy teaches her methods throughout Canada and in Europe. In 2005, she was awarded Canadian Quilters’ Association Teacher of the Year.
Cost $50 plus supplies
Zigzag sewing machine and its manual.
New machine embroidery needles 75/11 or 90/14 if you are using rayon embroidery threads. Metallic or metafil needles if you want to use metallic threads.
7 inch to 10 inch slim (3/8″) wooden embroidery hoop. A regular hoop will NOT substitute. It is too wide to pass under the presser foot. If you don’t have one, slim hoops will be available to purchase from Kathy for $10.
You will be making samples of weeds, trees , flowers, texture in water etc. so bring threads in greens (several shades), browns, yellows, blues etc. If you have rayon embroidery and metallic threads in these colours, bring them, but it’s not necessary to purchase them especially for this class. Instead, bring threads from your stash in these colours.
Several squares of muslin or plain light cotton approx. 12 inches square and several pieces of stabilizer such as tear- away to back your pieces.
Scissors, pins, ruler etc. ie normal sewing kit.
If you plan to start the 5 inch by 7 inch landscape, you will need small pieces for sky, mountain and water.
