Spring in the Hollow Quilt Show

Posted on Thursday, April 20, 2017 at 9:59 am

The Spring in the Hollow quilt show has been growing in popularity every year. Some quilts are very old and tell their own story. Some are new and tell historic stories

When you come to Spring in the Hollow on April 29, don’t miss the 7th annual fce Quilt Show in the IBIS Building from 10 until 4 p.m. Every year quilt lovers from surrounding counties and states visit Lynchburg to enjoy this display. The Quilt Show consists of quilted items only. There will be both hand and machine stitched quilts and spreads and a variety of other quilted items such as wall hangings, clothing, purses, pillows and table mats. There will be no vendors in the show. Admission is a donation of any amount which benefits the many fce community projects such as the Imagination Library and the Heart of Gold Citizenship Award. Visitors will also be asked to vote for their favorite quilt—a choice most find to be very difficult. Ribbons will be awarded to the top four. Last year’s show received high praise for its representation of quilts from every era, from the 1800s to “not quite finished.” When asked how she liked the show, a visiting quilt lover made the following comments: “I love it so much, I don’t want to leave. I attend quilt shows in some of the big cities and I don’t find the high percentage of old quilts and hand-stitched quilts in those shows that you have here.” If you would like to display one or more of your treasures, bring them to the IBIS Building on Friday, April 28, between noon and 5 p.m. Fce members take meticulous care of these prize quilts. No food or drinks are allowed to be brought into the show and visitors are furnished a pair of white gloves, because it is hard to not touch.
