The Quilt Show

All of the over 200 quilts to be displayed were created by Village Quilters members. The queen size Signature Quilt, "Tennessee Jewel," pictured above, would be a perfect addition to any home.

Marketplace Boutique

Time to get started with holiday gift shopping and something for yourself, too! Our Marketplace Boutique is FILLED with handmade items, like those pictured here, all made by guild members. Take time to walk around and do some browsing, but try to decide quickly -- you'll be glad you did. When these pieces are gone, they're gone!

Silent Auction

In addition to the Signature Quilt, the guild has been generously gifted with a hand pieced quilt from local quilt artist (and guild member) Cindy Blackberg, of Walland, TN. Cindy is a hand quilter of extraordinary skill and her exquisite work, “Honeycomb Stars,” which was published in American Patchwork and Quilting, will be just one of several items in the show’s Silent Auction – another great reason to attend.

Special Exhibit
Past Presidents and Past Winners Gallery

Our Show will be honoring the Past Presidents of the Guild, who have been invited to show one of their quilts in our Special Exhibit Gallery. In addition, Past Presidents have been invited to be Greeters during the show.  We appreciate all that these women have done for the Guild and we'd love for you to meet them!

Winners in each category from our 2012 Quilt Show will be on display, as well. We know you'll enjoy seeing these gorgeous creations.
