Airing of the Quilts:
Celebrating Macon County's
Saturday, May 10, 2014
Make plans to join us in Franklin, North Carolina, Saturday, May 10th for our Annual Airing of the Quilts celebration. You'll discover hundreds of quilts all throughout Historic Downtown Franklin as businesses and homeowners will be hanging quilts from their store fronts and porches that will create an unbelievable burst of spring color throughout the Town of Franklin, NC and Macon County.
The Historic West’s Mill District of Cowee will feature quilts and tours of Rickman’s Store and Pleasant Hill Church which will include quilting demonstrations from the Cowee Quilters.
Visitors can also tour the back roads and discover the Macon County Quilt Trail with over 20 quilt blocks that have been installed on barns, homes, and businesses throughout the county. Quilt Trail guides will be available for purchase.
Also that weekend, the Mother’s Day Gemboree will be taking place at the Macon County Community Building. This three-day gem, mineral, and jewelry show is now in its 13th year.
