It’s time for the annual Airing of the Quilts at the Appalachian Women’s Museum, (AWM) in Dillsboro. In the interest of safety, the Airing of the Quilts will be virtual this year except for one drive-by hanging quilt show.
Airing of the Quilts will be a month-long event with various types of materials released online throughout the month. Content will be available on appwomen.org and release of the content will be announced on Facebook. An airing of the Monteith sisters’ quilts will take place April 3rd which will be a drive-by only event. Mark your calendars to drive past the Monteith House (100 W. Hometown Place, Dillsboro, NC) from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., to see their quilts and those of our board members airing on the porch and balcony of the house. You may choose to view the quilts from the parking lot across the street. We will not be allowing visitors to the house per COVID-19 restrictions.
Please participate in April’s Airing by sharing photos of your quilts, old or new, made by you or someone else. Exhibitors hoping to show their quilts in next year’s in-person Airing of the Quilts may send in a photo this year as a preview. You can send us your photo in two different ways: 1) upload your photo to our Google Drive Folder or, 2) Email your photo to email@example.com. When you upload or email your quilt photo, please include a short history of the quilt. The photos and histories will be compiled and posted to the AWM website.
