The Cumberland Valley Quilters Association 2019 Quilt Show is slated to be held Oct. 11-12 at at St. Philip Catholic Center in Franklin.
The quilt show is the primary revenue generating event for CVQA along with its membership dues.
The Music City Modern Quilters Guild from Nashville will join CVQA members in showing their handmade quilts, according to a release.
Quilt displays will include both traditional and contemporary pieced designs as well as fiber arts designs, which emphasize aesthetic design over utility.
Visitors can also purchase raffle tickets on this year’s Raffle Quilt (image to the left), purchase small item gifts at the Boutique Shoppe, participate in a silent auction, visit with quilt vendors from across the state. This year attendees can also purchase quilts and table runners from guild members.
More about CVQA from the organization’s release:
CVQA is a not for profit organization that currently has 185 members. Members attend monthly meetings and workshops to develop skills in quilting and fiber arts. The guild is known throughout the state for its charitable activities. We have a very active Quilts of Valor outreach, involving the creation and distribution of quilts to American veterans. We also create quilts and sewn crafts for a number of charities, e.g., Monroe Carell Children’s Hospital in Williamson Medical Center, Claiborne and Hughes Nursing Facility, Bridges of Williamson County, My Friend’s House, Thistle Farms in Nashville, and many other recipients. We create a quilt every year to auction at the Ronald McDonald Telethon. We serve every year at the Williamson County Fair in the creative arts area by sewing a raffle quilt for the Fair and staffing the quilts display.
