The Western North Carolina Quilters Guild

The Western North Carolina Quilters Guild will carry on a 20-year tradition this June by displaying their creative passion for cloth and thread in the finished form of quilts.

The guild has been in the area since 1982 and was founded as a nonprofit organization to provide an opportunity for area quilters to promote the art of quilting. The goals of the guild are to understand and learn about quilt making and to perpetuate the fiber-art form.

Sharing their passion for this art form with the public at this year’s show, titled “A Garden of Quilts,” will give the community an opportunity to appreciate the fruits of the members’ labor. The show, presented jointly with Tarheels Piecemakers Quilt Club, will be held at East Henderson High School on Upward Road in Hendersonville on Thursday, June 25, through Saturday, June 27. The show hours are Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $5.

A new feature this year will be the “Bouquet of Quilts,” a quilt auction with small works of the art form contributed by Western’s members, as well as a Quilter’s Shop featuring quilts and other items made by the guild. Tarheels will have their “Carolina Vine” raffle quilt on display, and 15 vendors will display their wares in quilt-related categories.

Quilt show co-chair Karen Krupa says, “It is always an outstanding show, a wonderful opportunity for the community to come and see what makes us tick.” Info: www.westernncquilters.org or quiltshow@westernncquilters.org.
