Franklin County Arts Council is hosting its annual Quilt Show during the August 3rd Friday with the Artist event. The Quilt Show is not just for quilters; it’s also for people who enjoy the fiber arts and seeing where the quilts of our grandmothers have evolved.
Quilting was a craft born of necessity; a necessity born of scarcity with quilts made of cast-off scraps of fabric, often left over from making a family’s clothing. Today quilting remains extremely popular among North Carolinians, though most practice the craft as a hobby rather than as a necessity. The 3rd Friday Quilt Show features 10 quilters from Franklin and surrounding counties with at least 1 antique quilt made in the 1960s. On display, will be traditional as well as contemporary quilt designs.
Attend the Quilt Show / 3rd Friday with The Artist on Friday, August 16, 2019, 6-8pm — and vote for “Best In Show” — at the Gallery on Main, 118-B North Main Street, Louisburg, North Carolina.

- Kathy Dolezal
- Pat Belscher
- Lisa Binion
- Gayle Vargo
- Dawn Heller
- Cheryl VanGraafeiland
- Jan Marie Potter
- Jan Lattimer

Quilts will be on display and for sale beginning August 16 through September 7, 2019.
