3rd Annual Quilt Turning for the Quilt TrailWednesday July 19th ~ 12:00pm-2:00pm
Farmhouse Gallery and Gardens, Unicoi
Every quilt has a story: of the heart that designed it, the hands that stitched it, and the family who was warmed underneath it. Come to our 3rd annual special storytelling performance, with lunch, featuring the antique and heirloom quilts behind the Quilt Trail, and stories told by the quilt barn owners themselves! Plus this year we have special guest and Jonesbrough Storytellers Guild member Marjorie Shaefer for a special performance of her own stories.
You will see dozens of unique handmade antique quilts, hear old family stories, and you'll eat good too, thanks to Patricia Lynch's summery fresh cooking at Farmhouse Gallery and Gardens.
All proceeds go to support the nonprofit Quilt Trail of northeast Tennessee. Sponsored by Tennessee Quilts Shop and QuiltFest.
This event is part of a regional initiative sponsored by the Tennessee Arts Commission to document quilt and community stories. The stories at the quilt turning will be recorded and preserved online on our Quilt Trail YouTube channel.
Tickets are $40. For group discount (5+ attendees registering as a group, please email email@example.com) Includes lunch, chances to win door prizes and supports a great community 501c3 nonprofit cause. Call 423-979-2581 or register online at www.arcd.org for tickets.To download brochure Click Here
