Thank you to all who supported our Village Quilters! We had a wonderful show!
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”.
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 were 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 was voted on by the public to determine the Viewers’ Choice Awards. Ribbons were presented to the winners on Sunday.
Chairpersons of this year’s show were Nancy Green and Barb Craig.
The Marketplace Boutique, a show favorite, includes handmade children’s items, baby quilts, aprons, place mats, kitchen accessories, jewelry, holiday décor, and more. All items for sale were made by members of the guild at their Quilt Show Workshops.
Viewers Choice Awards were presented to:
Mamie Ringenbach "Freedom is Not Free"
Lori Rorstad "Denver Garden
Lynda Wallace "Nova"
