‘Rainbow of Quilts’ coming to Pickens

PICKENS — More than 150 quilted items will be on display at “A Rainbow of Quilts,” the biennial quilt show sponsored by the UpCountry Quilters Guild and scheduled for Friday and Saturday, Oct. 2-3, at Pickens View Wesleyan Church in Pickens.

Show hours on Friday are from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Quilt show chairman Gayle Duncan expects entries to include miniatures, large quilts, art quilts, wall hangings, and miscellaneous quilted items made by members of the guild.

Connie Brown, Certified Appraiser and Quilt Show Judge, will judge the entries prior to the show and prize ribbons will be pinned on the winning entries.

Also, visitors will be asked to vote for their favorite quilt which will receive the Viewers’ Choice Award.

A modern-styled “presentation quilt” stitched by guild members will be on display. Chances will be sold, a drawing will be held, and the queen-sized quilt will go home with some lucky winner at the close of the show.

The show also will have a silent auction where visitors may bid on quilted items made by members of the guild. The show also will feature a number of vendors, a fat quarter basket drawing, door prizes and a “Second Time Around” booth filled with gently used quilt-related items for sale, including books, tools and fabric.

Pickens View Wesleyan Church is located at 744 Bethlehem Ridge Road, just off Highway 8 between Easley and Pickens.

Hours on Friday October 2 are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday October 3, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $5.00.
