Airing of the Quilts, a new event showcasing quilt artistry, will be held on Saturday, May 7, in downtown Franklin.
Businesses and homeowners will hang quilts from their storefronts and porches to create a burst of spring color throughout the town.
While the downtown area will be the focus of the event, everyone is invited to join in to create a county-wide display of quilts. Residents can call to have their location added to a list that will be handed out during the event.
The Smoky Mountain Quilters Guild, Macon County Quilt Trail project and Macon County Art Association will also have displays on the square in downtown, while the Cowee Quilters will be demonstrating at Pleasant Hill AME Church in the West’s Mill District.
