One hundred quilts will be showcased during the Airing of the Quilts, June 24-25 at the Jackson County Public Library and Historic Courthouse.
The "Library Quilt" above will be officially presented to library officials Friday at noon. It will hang permanently in the new library in the restored historic courthouse in Sylva. It was created by Tuesday Quilters, a Sylva guild.
Saturday's highlight is a fashion show and luncheon at 11:30 a.m. at the courthouse.
Patchwork, quilted and handwoven garments will be the focus of the show, which includes a catered lunch and a raffle ticket for a free quilt.
Daily admission to the Airing of the Quilts is a $3 donation.
Tickets for the fashion show and luncheon are $20, and include a raffle ticket.
The event is presented by Tuesday Quilters of Sylva and the Smoky Mountain Quilters Guild of Franklin.
