Special exhibits around town during AQS QuiltWeek

Chattanooga area quilters are working diligently preparing for AQS QuiltWeek Chattanooga, coming September 10-13, 2014. We love quilts and quilting of all kinds (and we know fellow quilters do, too) so we want to make you, our visitors, feel welcome!
The work of the Zuri Quilters from middle Tennessee showcases
a bold use of color and improvisational patchwork. 
My friend, Karen, one of the FiberAntics Artist Trading Card (ATC) artists and a fellow guild member, is coordinating with the Bessie Smith Cultural Center to bring the work of the Zuri Quilters for an exhibit, opening September 5.

Zuri Quilters Artist Talk
Bessie Smith Cultural Center
September 11, 6 pm.
"Zuri" means "beautiful" in Swahili, and these quilters produce stunning work in bright, saturated colors and bold designs, mixing contemporary fabrics with African-inspired prints. The Zuri Quilters guild celebrated a 5 year anniversary in February, 2014.

Don't miss a special Artist Talk from the Zuri Quilting Guild on Thursday evening, September 11, at 6 pm at the Cultural Center. Show your AQS Show attendee badge or wristband for free admission to this presentation!

We're looking forward to seeing everyone at QuiltWeek Chattanooga. Hope this makes you feel welcome!
