This Guild exhibit is a destination. Each year, visitors walk in the front doors and pause to catch their breath. After the initial shock of the volume and beauty of fiber art before them, they comment how far they traveled just to view this event. Entranced, they browse for hours with friends and family. They share fond memories with joy and laughter, and leave with a smile on their face.
Each year, the Bowen welcomes back the Heart in Hand Quilt Guild and their overwhelming display of hard work and talent. We hope the Quilt Guild understands what a tremendous impact their art means, and how far their efforts reach out especially in these reflective times. Members hail from Dawson, Hall, Lumpkin, Pickens and Forsyth Counties.
