Pigeon Forge’s A Mountain Quiltfest – A Quilt Show in the Smokies

A Mountain Quiltfest 2011 Winner Peggy Garwood

Pastors Attic II - 2011 Best of Show

Are you a dedicated quilter with years of experience? Or are you a beginner who wants to learn more about quilting?  From Wednesday, March 14th through Saturday, March 17th Carr’s Cottages invites you to come to the Smokey Mountains and enjoy the timeless art of quilting at this annual quilt fair, no matter your skill level or experience. While at the A Mountain Quiltfest, there will be two avenues of quilting fun: that of attending quilting classes or quilt shows. In order to truly make this festival an experience to remember, why not attend both?

Quilting classes are a fun way to learn new techniques for quilting, as well as improving your own skills. No matter your level or expertise, with over sixty classes, there’s a class everyone can enjoy! Classes begin on Tuesday, March 13th and feature ten different instructors from all over the United States ranging from Alaska to Florida, ensuring very diverse learning opportunities.

The quilt show is another large part of A Mountain Quiltfest which will feature the stunning quilts that numerous quilters from novice to expert have put so much time and effort into. The quilters who submit an entry into the quilting festival are competing in ten different categories for prizes amounting to over $20,000! It is truly a sight to see since nowhere else will you experience the diverse amount of quilting that will be on display at the quilt show.  Check out the competition and see the winners from the 2011 A Mountain Quilt Festival.

Do you have a quilt that you have made that you would like to enter into Pigeon Forge’s A Mountain Quiltfest quilt show? That is great to hear and you are encouraged to enter! All entries must follow provided guidelines.

Further details about quilt show entries, quilt classes and class fees (which range from $40-$135), instructors and location can be found at www.MountainQuiltFest.com.

We hope to see you all for the A Mountain Quiltfest this March!
