Press release from the Asheville Quilt Guild:
Sept. 28 marks the opening day of the 36th Annual Asheville Quilt Show sponsored by the Asheville Quilt Guild and Moda Fabrics at the WNC Ag Center in the Davis Event Center.

It has been said that the Asheville Quilt Show is a regional show with a national reputation. The show attracts nationally known talented artists, as well as quilters on their way up and novices too. Those in competition are vying for over $10,000 in prize money. Demonstrations by accomplished local quilters will take place throughout the show. And for the younger set, there will be a Kids’ Sewing Station. The Asheville Quilt Guild wants to start them early!
In addition to inspiring quilts, there are shopping opportunities as well, with more than 25 vendors who cater to the quilter as well as non-quilters. Plus, the Guild hosts a Gift Shop, a Silent Auction; there will be quilts for sale. To help keep attendees’ strength up, there is food available onsite.
