The quilt show will be held on September 23rd, from 10-2 and will outside at The Fabrik Emporium in Waynesboro, TN.
Anne, who owns the shop, has been working very hard to getting the publicity we need to make this quilt show a success.
Fabric will be on sale for $5, $7, and $9 (108" wide backing) a yard on the day of the show.
Our goal for the show is 50 quilts!
Last year after our Veteran's Day presentation we had folks say they wished we had held up each quilt as they wanted to see them. Because of these requests we have decided to have a quilt show on September 23rd. We will have our 50 quilts on display. We have a representative coming from our Senator's office, haven't heard back from other officials as yet. A local band has offered to provide live music. Some businesses in town and others have asked to put up booths to sell their products. The local FUDGE maker will also be there! He has over 25 kinds of fudge and is preparing a "fudge recipe booklet" to sell. Most of the charities in the county will be there to hand out information for their groups. White beans and cornbread will be served to benefit one of our local charities. White beans are always served at functions in our county. Fried pies will also be available.
We also have a opportunity ("free-will" donation) quilt we will be giving away at the end of the show. The quilt is 100 inches square. The bottom of the quilt shows the backing.
All monies raised will be used to purchase fabric and batting to make Vet quilts. The first event we took the quilt to was the Garden Show and we made $187! Never dreamed we would get that much in just 4 hours. The quilt is currently making it's way to all the banks in our small town.
Wayne County, TN is about two hours southwest of Nashville.
