Maggie Valley quilt show to celebrate fall

The High Country Quilters 22nd Annual Quilt Show, “Bear Foot In the Mountains,” will take place daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 11-13 at the Maggie Valley Town Hall and Pavilion/Civic Center.

This year’s theme quilt is a bear paw design of fall colors. Tickets for the quilt are available from every member of the guild and will also be for sale at the show. The drawing will take place at 4 p.m. Oct. 13, and the winner does not have to be present.

The food court and bake sale will be held in the pavilion. In addition, several local vendors will be on hand, including J. Creek Fabrics, Sister’s Quilts Fabrics, Sew New Again Sewing Machines, Lisa’s Quilting Shed, Elaine’s Attic, Little Blessings Quilt Shop and Pappy’s Quilting Place.

High Country Quilters is a nonprofit organization and funds collected from the sale of the theme quilt, and the show are used for local scholarships and charities. The event is free and open to the public.
