Sycamore Stitchers Quilt Show

The first weekend in October marks the 22nd year of the Sycamore Stitchers Quilt Show at Sycamore Shoals State Historic Park in Elizabethton, Tennessee.
The Sycamore Stitchers meet at the park each month sharing their love of quilting and engaging in a wide variety of projects. Each year they host the Sycamore Stitchers Quilt Show which focuses on historic and modern quilting techniques and patterns. The Visitors Center of the park comes alive with color and design for four full days, Thursday through Sunday,
October 6– 9.
Categories of quilts displayed include, Hand Quilted Bed Quilts, Machine Quilted Bed Quilts, Baby Quilts, Long Arm Quilted Bed Quilts, Juvenile/Lap Quilts, Holiday Wall Hangings, Wall Hangings, Large Wall Hanging, Small/Miniature Wall Hangings, the Sycamore Stitchers Challenge, and Antique Quilts. Antique Quilts will be displayed on a bed and turned frequently for viewing.
The Sycamore Stitchers Quilting Group will also be exhibiting their completed challenge quilts. This year our challenge is titled, “Here We Go-A-Caroling.” It will be an interesting challenge.
Gloves will be provided so visitors can touch and examine the quilts. You are also encouraged to photograph any or all of the quilts. Visitors will be able to vote for their favorite in each category except antiques.
The show is open to the public and free of charge and is sponsored by the Carter County UT Extension Service and Sycamore Shoals State Historic Park.
