Granville Quilt Festival - October 7, 2023
Information below is from our 2022 event.
Watch for details about our 2023 Quilt Festival.
The Quilt Festival for 2022 is planned in conjunction with our Fall Festival and will be held at the Granville United Methodist Church. Whether you are a quilter or just appreciate the beauty and workmanship of one of the earliest forms of art, you will enjoy entering your quilts or quilted items or just visiting the show to see the beautiful display. See quilts that are destined to be family heirlooms.
With 27 categories for entries, the best in needlework and artistry will be on display. Every person entering the show this year will receive 25% Off one item and a handmade gift compliments of Aunt Bee's Quilt Shop and Bakery (opening soon at 205 Line Street in Granville). In addition, there will be a $100 Award presented to the Club, Quilting Group or Guild who has the most entries.
This year's activities include storytelling on Historic Granville porches followed by an old fashioned Quilt Turning at Granville's newest museum, Tennesee Quilt & Textile Museum. (Opening Soon)
Check entry locations on the Festival Guidelines and plan now to enter your quilt or quilted items.
