Bowen Arts Center


Heart in Hand Quilt Guild brings another great FREE display of quilts produced by club members. These beautiful works will be on display from August 12 to September 28. Over 70 quilts will be again dripping from the rafters of this vintage schoolhouse building. Visitors from as far as Montana to California, Florida and Maine stop in to see this amazing exhibition. Docents will usually be on hand mid-day for tours and information.

Join us for the Opening Reception Saturday, August 12 from 2-4pm. Meet this energetic group of fiber artists from all over North Georgia. Bring friends and family and enjoy refreshments and snacks for a fun afternoon. Join this Guild and be inspired, volunteer, create or just commune. Membership is only $20 per year. They meet at the Bowen every second Tuesday of the month from 5:30 to 6:30pm. Drop in and enjoy!  For more information, email Brenda Perez, Guild President at brendaroseperez@gmail.com.

Every year this guild donates a quilt to the Bowen to help support its special events. Tickets are only $1.00 or six for $5.00! The beautiful quilt this year is titled Pointing Toward…Summer and features Diane D. Knott’s “Splash” pattern found in her book Strip Quilt Secrets. This Queen/King size (95″x95″) quilt features beautiful batik fabric and sandy background make for a summer day at the beach! Guild members participated in the quilt’s creation by donating batik fabrics, then it was on to the crews who cut, pieced, laid out pattern, then final quilting.  Many thanks to Jeannie Whitworth, chairman of the Raffle Quilt and to everyone for all their efforts.
