Western North Carolina’s rich cultural heritage comes to life on Aug. 6 through during the Asheville Quilt Guild’s 28th Annual Show at The North Carolina Arboretum.
The popular show is a judged event featuring more than 250 quilts of exceptional craftsmanship from across the U.S. and worldwide. The three-day show offers live demonstrations, a vendor’s mall and more. This year’s theme is “Stars Over the Mountains.”
The show runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. $8 for parking per vehicle and $5 for the Quilt Show.
Visitors to The Arboretum during the Quilt Show will also be able to explore engaging indoor and outdoor exhibits, including:
• “Balance and Beauty: A Visual Celebration of Rural Life,” featuring paintings by Margaret Scanlan at the Baker Exhibit Center.
• “Inflorescence,” a new outdoor sculpture exhibit throughout the Arboretum’s gardens by Jason S. Brown and Elizabeth Scofield that features a variety of botanical forms created from synthetic nylon fabric.
