Best of the Best Quilt Show
Is there anything more comforting than a finely made quilt? To experience the best that the quilting world has to offer, be sure to attend A Mountain Quiltfest being held at the LeConte Center in Pigeon Forge from March 15 through 19. The event is free and open to the public. The registration desk will open on the Monday, March 14 with activities beginning the next day.
On Tuesday, March 15 beginning at 4:30 p.m., attendees are invited to the First Night Meet the Instructors. Vendors, sponsors, and instructors will be on hand to answer any questions. The hall will be open until 7 p.m.
Want to know what your quilt is worth? Candace St. Lawrence, AQS-certified quilt appraiser will be available to look at your quilts. These consultations are by appointment only. You can either book in advance or check the registration table for availability.
Local quilters and guild members will narrate information about antique quilts made prior to 1966 in the Antique Quilt Bed Turning Room. Two sets of quilts will be alternated throughout the week. Find out who made the quilts and why. Also listen for special patterns and techniques used in the making of the quilts.
Be sure to bring your own quilts to Show and tell on Friday, March 18 at 6 p.m. Admission, as always, is free and open to anyone. During the Show and Tell, drawings will be held for a sewing machine, quilting table, and many more door prizes. Tickets can be obtained by making donations, for showing your items, or simply for attending.
