The 2013 Landrum Quilt Show featuring some 150 traditional, contemporary and art quilts gets underway June 13-15.
The event takes place in the gym at the Landrum Middle School, 104 Redland Rd.
The show also offers drawings for a queen-size quilt and baskets of fabric.
Other attractions include a boutique with handmade items, and 12 vendors offering fabric of all types, quilting books and notions, yarns, jewelry and more.
The Landrum Quilters sponsors the show every two years, in cooperation with the City of Landrum, the Landrum Area Business Association, the Spartanburg County Parks Department and the Spartanburg District One Schools.
Visitors are encouraged to vote for their favorite quilts in a variety of categories on Thursday and Friday. Ribbons, including Best in Show, are awarded Saturday morning.
Internationally recognized contemporary quilt artist, Marilyn Doheny of Tryon, NC, and a member of the Landrum Quilters, is the quilter-in-residence.
Her fancifully creative designs represent a distinct departure from traditional ones.
A display features the club’s philanthropy quilts, pillowcases, neck pillows and tote bags. Information about the new Foothills Quilt Trail is also planned.
The show takes place from 10 a.m. – 5 p. m. on Thursday and Friday and on Saturday from 1-4 p. m.
