GILBERTSVILLE – Volunteers and fabric arts enthusiasts began to gather once again early this week at the Major’s Inn on the main strip in Gilbertsville in preparation for the 13th annual Heirlooms Past and Present Quilt show.
Drawing in a large local and regional crowds, the show has become the highlight of the year for many quilters in the area. “People come from all over,” said Major’s Inn Foundation Director CeeCee Rowe. “This is something for the whole community.”
The show, as a tradition, is held the first week in October and this year will offer a variety of quilts from past to present, totaling 180 pieces. The Inn will be decorated from top to bottom with quilts on both the first and second floors.
