Thank you Fountain Inn Activities Center for your community outreach and all that you offer the seniors that come to the center.

The quilt show is “viewer’s choice” which means ribbons are awarded based on the number of votes received by each quilt in each category. Voting takes place on Saturday and ribbons will be displayed on Sunday.

There will be a display of quilts for Habitat for Humanity and Quilts of Valor. Ken Hinkle, Upstate Coordinator for South Carolina, stated, “The Quilts of Valor Foundation of the Upstate plan to award quilts to two veterans at 10:00 AM and two veterans at 2:00 PM on Saturday. Come at the scheduled times to support our veterans and see the masterpieces our quilters produce.”

The quilt show includes a boutique with handcrafted items for sale, demonstrations, a fat quarter basket, a scavenger hunt, vendors, and an opportunity quilt where tickets may be purchased for an opportunity to win the quilt.
