SYCAMORE SHOALS QUILT SHOW - OCTOBER 4-7

Sycamore Stitchers’ annual quilt show started today, Thursday, October 4.  This great free show is open 8-4pm, through Saturday, and 1-4 Sunday.    Forty-five members of this group and others  show their work and you have a chance to help choose “People’s Choice.”    I go home from shows like this wishing I had more hours in my days and being amazed by the talent and the patience of the quilters.   

I’ve been there several years and it’s always been a great show.    I’m strictly an amateur, but I’m a good appreciator.    I took a friend with me several years ago who said she “liked to play at quilting” – something off-hand  like that.   I decided later when I saw the kind of quilting she “played at”, she could have won a prize if she’d entered.

Picture-taking is allowed, and I have several dozen photos from other years to inspire me when I retire someday and have time to spend creatively.  

The “challenge” for this year was to create something no larger than 40x40 to illustrate the theme, “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.”   In addition to the challenge, there are a number of other categories.   

This is a busy weekend for Northeast Tennessee – National StoryTelling festival in Jonesborough and Unicoi  Apple festival are competing for your time, and the weather is too beautiful to do anything but get out and go somewhere fun.     

I should perhaps have waited to blog until I could talk about the show in more detail, but I can’t go until tomorrow and I wanted to be sure you knew about it today so you could make plans.   See you there?  

Sycamore Shoals State Historic Area is at 1651 W. Elk Avenue, Elizabethton.
