Contributed • Oct 2, 2019 at 8:36 PM

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.

Members have spent hours designing, piecing, and quilting this year’s entries. There is always something new and exciting at each show. Today’s quilters will surely leave a rich legacy for future generations.

Categories of quilts displayed include, Hand Quilted Bed Quilts, Machine Quilted Bed Quilts, Baby/Crib Quilts, Long Arm Quilted Bed Quilts, Juvenile/Lap Quilts, Small/Miniature Wall Hanging, Large Wall Hanging, 4-H Quilt Camp Participant Quilts, Sycamore Stitcher Member Youth Quilts, the Sycamore Stitchers Challenge, and Antique Quilts. This year our challenge is called “Silver Anniversary.” Antique Quilts will be displayed on a bed and turned frequently for viewing.

The exhibit will showcase talent that will be judged only by the spectators. A People’s Choice Award will be given in 11 categories, which excludes antique quilts.

Gloves will be provided so visitors can touch and examine the quilts. You are also encouraged to photograph any or all of the quilts.

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.

Events will be held 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. Sunday
