Airing of the Quilts
On Saturday, April 21st, from 12:00 noon to 4:00 p.m., a mountain tradition of “Airing of the Quilts” will be held at the Appalachian Women’s Museum (AWM). We want to invite you to have a part in this special day by exhibiting your quilts – old or new, made by you or by someone else – in short, any quilts you want to bring. This is not a competition, rather, it is an exhibition.
Register your quilt using the form below by April 2nd along with emailing a photo of your quilts. Include as much of the history of your quilts as you know. Quilts should be brought to the AWM between 9:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. on April 21st and may be picked up after 4:00 p.m.
Plan to enjoy music at the pavilion on the property, a raffle of Linda Kotila’s quilt watercolor (and possibly some other items), a quilt scavenger hunt, and a photographer to take photos of quilts and owners. We are especially excited about having a quilt square/fabric scraps exchange. Folks can bring squares or fabric they no longer want, measured and labeled with amount of yardage, and placed in plastic ziplock bags. It’s a great way to recycle like our quilting ancestors used to do!
We hope you’ll help make this a great day by bringing your quilts and by coming to see the others. If you have questions, please contact Cheryl Beck at (828) 421-3820 or firstname.lastname@example.org
