The 2019 Georgia Celebrates Quilts Show features 12 Canton artists and 21 Woodstock artists at its 17th biennial event.

Visitors can immerse themselves into the world of quilting as some of the most talented quilters from around the state compete for $4,000 worth of cash prizes. More than 344 quilts will be on display in the gallery and handmade pieces range from artful wall hangings to traditional bed coverings. Organizers said the show will offer inspiration and pleasure for quilters, artists and everyone who appreciates the results of this art form.

The event also includes a Quilted Treasures boutique featuring unique handmade items, a block party display of blocks made by K-12 students, several raffles and a marketplace featuring quilt related products. The Georgia Celebrates Quilts Show is a family friendly event and is being held at the Cobb County Civic Center.

At the show, visitors can also shop with dozens of vendors from near and far as well as buy raffle tickets for “celebration,” the quilt created by ECQG members, baskets with quilting and non-quilting items and a sewing studio transformation. Guild members have also created fabric postcards and quilts for sale, while wall quilts and three-dimensional quilted objects are offered at a silent auction.

The Georgia Celebrates Quilts Show is from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. June 6, 7 and 8 at the Cobb County Civic Center, 548 South Marietta Parkway SE. Tickets are $10 at the door.
