Patriotic Quilts of Valor to be displayed at Garden of Quilts show
Published 3:57 pm Tuesday, April 4, 2017
Several members of the Western North Carolina Quilters Guild will be showing their Quilts of Valor at the Garden of Quilts show May 5-6. These patriotic quilts will later be awarded to veterans in our area. The mission of the Quilts of Valor Foundation is to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor.
Also, there will be quilt blocks which visitors will be able to sign to show their support. These will be made into a Quilt of Valor and also awarded to a veteran.
The show will feature over 100 quilts. Hours are 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Friday, and 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Saturday. The location is the Bonclarken Conference Center in Flat Rock, N.C.
There will also be several fabric and arts-and-crafts vendors, a guild boutique shop and a variety of food items for sale at Bonclarken’s pavilion. Group tours may be available.
There is an admission fee. Wheelchairs and walkers welcome.
