One of the most celebrated heritage crafts of the Appalachian Mountains are handmade quilts. Some of the best of these can be found at the annual Quilt Show held in historic Burnsville. The beauty of these painstakingly intricate quilts will both amaze and intrigue you. Art almost always evokes a curiosity about the mind and life of the artist behind the craft, a wonder about or a revelation of why it resonates so deeply with us. Mountain Piecemakers Quilt Guild was founded in 1997 to: Promote and preserve the art and history of quilts; Foster quilt making in all its forms; Teach quilt making; and Further skills of quilters.
