Loudon, TN: They may be tucked away in East Tennessee, but The Village Quilters have some of the most talented quilters in the country. And these accomplished women will showcase the gems they’ve created at their bi-annual show, “Spooling Around,” scheduled for Saturday, October 13 from 9 am – 4 pm and Sunday, October 14 from 11 am – 4 pm.
The show will be held in the Tellico Village
Chota Recreation Center. Admission is $6. Free parking and a shuttle will be provided at Chota Center. Follow the signs along SR 444 (Tellico
Parkway), to Chota Road at the traffic light in Tellico Village.
While a large number of the Village Quilters’ 300+ members are from Tellico Village and the Loudon and Monroe County areas, our membership also draws from Knoxville to Chattanooga and beyond. Several members are national award winning quilters in their own right.
All of the 175 plus quilts to be displayed were created by Village Quilters members. Varying greatly in size and style, the quilts range from king size to miniature. In addition to bed quilts and wall quilts, members have created wearable art, dolls and purses, as well. The main body of work displayed will be voted on by the public to determine the Viewers’ Choice Awards. Ribbons will be presented to the winners on Sunday.
Chairpersons of this year’s show are Nancy Green and Barb Craig. “This year’s show is shaping up to be our best ever. We know all our guests will be impressed,” said Nancy. “The beautiful quilts on display are well worth the trip,” added Barb.
The Marketplace Boutique, a show favorite, includes handmade children’s items, baby quilts, aprons, placemats, kitchen accessories, jewelry, holiday décor, and more. All items for sale have been made by members of the guild at their Quilt Show Workshops. “You can get a great start at your Christmas shopping,” said Nancy. “Our products are beautifully made and they’ll be affordably priced, as well.” Barb adds, “There will be something for everyone.”
