Musical Feast: All Things Bright and Beautiful
Saturday, September 30, 2017 @ 11:30 am$45
Asheville’s annual Quilt Show at the Agricultural Center is titled “All Things Bright and Beautiful” with good reason! These colorful and artistic quilts are created and produced by people from all over the country. Men as well as women have an interest in, and love for, this timeless art form and your hosts, nationally known Georgia Bonesteel and Judy Simmons, invite you to spend an enjoyable afternoon learning all about it.
Begin your day in Biltmore Park (private address will be sent to attendees via email) in a home filled with quilts and enjoy a lunch consisting of a variety of salads, little bites and desserts. Here you will have the opportunity to visit a quilter’s work area that features her fabric stash, design wall and quilting tools.
Then drive to the WNC Agricultural Center (1301 Fanning Bridge Rd, Fletcher, NC 28731) where you will be greeted by Asheville Quilt Guild members, avid quilters all, who will lead a guided tour of the exhibit floor. This year’s entries, which have been professionally judged, are on display and highlighted in different categories. You will learn all about the quilting process and the fascinating construction of the quilted masterpieces.
In the course of the tour and afterwards, you will have time to see all the exhibits, shop for handmade items in the Gift Shop and Gallery and visit with the many vendors. Come with your friends to the Feast and spend as much time as you choose at this unique exhibition.
