PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (March 2013) – Handmade quilts can be many things in one – a source of warmth, works of art, family heirlooms and more.

Quilts in all their glory are the focus of A Mountain Quiltfest in Pigeon Forge from March 12-16.

Quilters and crafters from across the U.S. gather to enjoy a quilt show and the opportunity to choose from dozens of classes and seminars.

Whether you are a quilter or not, the displays are worth the trip to this Great Smoky Mountains resort town. This is the 19th year of A Mountain Quiltfest.

There are free-admission quilt shows at the Music Road Convention Center and the Smoky Mountain Convention Center, plus a vendor area for a variety of quilt- and craft-related items. Other Quiltfest activities include brunch and dinner lectures, show-and-tell events and quilt appraisals.

Detailed information is available at www.mountainquiltfest.com.

A Mountain Quiltfest is produced by the city of Pigeon Forge and co-hosted by the Piecemakers and Sevier ValleyQuilters Guilds.
