Quilting Workshops In Maryville

Who We Are

Eight Women organized Foothills Quilt Guild in 1993. By sharing how to quilt specific project with each other, it quickly grew and today has over fifty members. Quilting workshops are generally held at the second meeting of the month in Maryville.

The guild meets regularly on the first and third Thursdays of the month from 10am to 2pm. Those interested may attend meetings at First Baptist Church Maryville, 202 West Lamar Alexander Parkway or call 982-6490 for information.

Quilting is an important part of our heritage. Our purpose is to promote and encourage the unique art of quilt making and to instill an appreciation and pride in preserving our heritage. We build individual skills through fellowship with other quilters.

Each month two members volunteer to have their quilt hang in the Maryville Municipal Building for the duration of the month for the public to view. To the right are two of those quilts.

 

 

The Foothills Quilters participated in the Blue Ribbon County Fair in Townsend by setting at a table where they were quilting for the public. Check out the picture of the ladies.
